I had wanted to do this for along time. Took the "slow" train which gave more time for the fabulous views. Confusing to go into a tunnel with a mountain on one side and come out with it on the other! No food on board, but you can take your own, plenty of rubbish bins on board.

The trip deserves all the money with that panoramic view . Passing Bernina Pass you get a lot: beauty of mountain with snow and lakes, different beautiful buildings in Italian and German style, chilly and warm weather, viaducts,Love it! even is a slow express :)
