We arrived from Milan en route to Zurich. Choose the longer, slower route because we had heard so much about the Bernina Express. It didn't disappoint. Lovely scenery! Our Eurail Pass was accepted with a slight charge, < 30 Euros.

Traveling with my husband and another couple, we were ready to enjoy a relaxing train ride through the Alps. The air conditioning did not work, shades broken and constant alarms ringing in our train car spoiled the serenity of the Alps. It was unseasonably hot...More

Tirano is the southern terminus of the Bernina Express. A fabulous, must-do expereince winding up and down amazing mountain railways through stunning scenery. The open air observation car which is attached to the back of many trains is a brilliant white knuckle ride.

Swiss rail is a model of how railways should be run. Punctual, spotless with lots of information provided on the trains.

One of the most spectacular train trips you could every do. There are two types of tickets though. The local train or the Bernina express. If you want luxury and glass windows that give you a full vista you need the Bernina express. But if...More

We did Tirano to St Moritz on the Bernini Express and it was absolutely wonderful. I don’t think it goes direct Zurich. I’m also unsure as to whether or not a Eurorail ticket includes the Bernini Express.
