Travel on the narrow-gauge Bernina Express through the Swiss Alps to Tirano then transfer to the shores of Lake Como for more spectacular scenery.

Day 1: Travel to Zurich; overnight in St Moritz

Fly or travel by train to Zurich. From here, the super-efficient Swiss rail network will whisk you to Chur, and then on to Punt Muragl, the ultimate way of exploring the Alpine scenery of the Zurichsee and Walensee lakes with just one easy change in Samedan.

Transfer by funicular from Punt Muragl station to the Romantik Hotel Muottas, St Moritz, situated at the top of the ride.

We recommend spending two nights at the Romantik Hotel Muottas, to allow time to visit glamorous St Moritz. Situated at almost 2500m, surrounded by the extraordinary Engadine mountain range, accommodation is in Nordic-style traditional rooms. There are two restaurants: the less formal Scatla restaurant or the option of candlelit dinners in the Panorama restaurant. At breakfast, homemade muesli, pastries and coffee is served on the panoramic terrace.

Day 3: Bernina Express to Tirano; transfer to Lake Como

The four hour Bernina Express train ride to Tirano travels through the Bernina Pass, offering glimpses of the Morteratsch Glacier and aerial views at Ospizio Bernina, over 200m above sea level. The journey continues past fir-tree covered mountains, pretty villages and the legendary Brusio Spiral Viaduct.

From Tirano, it is a short walk to the Trenitalia station where you can board a train to Varenna on Lake Como and Milan. The train journey to Varenna takes approximately 1.5 hours.

From Varenna is quick hop on teh private boat to the Hotel Filario, a lakeside hotel with glorious views. The best rooms have a large terrace overlooking the lake. With a pretty waterfront and tiny stone beach, Hotel Filario in Lezzeno is extremely well-located for visiting other Como resorts.


Please note that this is a sample itinerary and holidays can be organised combining any hotel, duration and method of travel.
