I'd heard good things about this journey but I was still blown away at how superb the route is, how the landscape changes from green to white to green. The train line itself is interesting, with viaducts leading into tunnels, and rotating on themselves to...More

Wonderful train journey from Chur to Tirano. Stunning scenery the entire way, with an audio guide and leaflet provided giving information on the various locations passed. Seats were comfortable and clean, although a lack of luggage space was a little inconvenient. Make sure you book...More

A brilliant trip. The winter scenery was fantastic. I really enjoyed the whole trip, but the highlights were the Brusio circular viaduct and a stop at Alp Grum in a snowstorm.

Charming trip down through the Alps to Italy. Swiss efficiency for sure.....to the point that our friend missed the train, as it left on time! The next local train had them catch up at the end of the line....problem solved.

We chose the afternoon departure as it worked into our schedule. Unfortunately the last 1.5 hours of it was in the dark which didn’t allow us to take advantage of the views. What we did see at the start of the journey was stunning. The...More
