BERNINA EXPRESS from DAVOS – TIRANO This mountain railway is one of Europe’s most picturesque journeys and is the highest in the Alps. From the panoramic carriages enjoy spectacular views of glaciers, mountains, lakes and valleys, crossing numerous viaducts and passing through spiral tunnels before reaching Tirano.

TIRANO is an historical Italian town situated at the narrowest point in the Valtellina Valley which is also an important crossroads between the northern and southern Alps. Our return journey by coach takes us over the spectacular Bernina Pass.

 

 

CHUR is the oldest Alpine city in Switzerland, full of charm in a wonderful mountain setting. There is a real Mediterranean-style atmosphere in the Old Town where you can explore the narrow, twisting alleys and streets lined with historic buildings.

The AROSA MOUNTAIN RAILWAY trundles through the streets of Chur before suddenly climbing up into the mountains. In just 26km it climbs 1,000 metres! One of the highlights is when to train seems to glide across Langwieser Viaduct, 60 metres above the Plessur river.

 

 

KLOSTERS is a romantic rural village which in winter is an exclusive ski resort for the rich and famous. In summer its a popular centre for rambling and cycling.
