Itinerary: Start from Milan (h 7 am), Como (h 8 am), Varenna or Menaggio (h 8:50) or any other town on the route. Pickup and dropoff at your hotel or apartment.
If staying in Bellagio get the h 8:35 car ferry boat to Varenna (arrives at h 8:50 am).

Drive to Tirano (about 2 hours) with views and experiences along the famous Valtellina valley with its vineyards, apples cultivations and food specialties.
Guided visit to a local winery.

In Tirano you take the famous Red Train of Bernina (Bernina Express).
N.B. Tickets will be bought at Tirano station (no need to book them in advance). Cost: about Euro 30 per person (second class), about Euro 60 per person (first class).  Second and first class seats are just the same, so no reason to spend twice as much.

Unesco World Heritage, this train runs along the highest mountain train route in Europe; a spectacular journey of 2 hours from Tirano to St. Moritz via the Bernina Pass, a breath-taking journey in the Alps, in Canton Grisons, close to the Bernina and Morterasch glaciers.

The Guide reaches you again in Sankt Moritz for a guided tour of the town.
Sankt Moritz, the famous resort of winter and summer tourism. Stunning views over the lakes (frozen in winter) and the Alps, luxury hotels, exclusive shopping streets etc.

Afternoon: drive back through the Maloja Pass and possibly a stop on the way to the Piuro waterfalls  or Chiavenna with its typical Crottos.


Lunch:
 time for lunch on your own and shopping in Sankt Moritz; restaurants with typical local specialties will be suggested. Alternatively you can bring your own food or buy  it in Tirano and consume it along the train trip (together with the wine you may buy at the winery).


Extra costs
:  lunch,  train tickets (see above)


Important
:
Make sure you have your passport valid for border control (Switzerland is not part of EU).
