    Today, for those passengers who have pre-booked, our optional excursion takes you to the world famous resort of St. Moritz. Sporting life has always been an important part of St Moritz, and over 100 years ago the first British visitors used to stage toboggan races in the streets.

    There will be a short amount of time for you to explore before we board the Bernina Region Railway and cross one of the highest railroad lines in the Alps. As we approach the Swiss / Italian border, we travel over the Brusio spiral viaduct, an amazing feat of engineering that allows the train to gradually descend 20 metres in a relatively short distance.

    We arrive in Tirano, a quaint Italian town, where we spend a short amount of free time before returning to our hotel.

    This excursion is highly recommend and extremely popular, therefore we recommend that this excursion is booked in advance. The cost is £39 per person.
