This north-south Alpine crossing offers breathtaking views and stunning scenery as you travel over boldly curved viaducts and through winding tunnels. After 2.5 hours on board, watch the scenery change from windswept gorges and snow-clad glaciers to the chic chalets of St Moritz.Hop off the train to enjoy roughly 1.5 hours of free time in the exclusive resort of St. Moritz, stopping at Swizerland’s best chocolate house (food and drink at your own expensese) and enjoy free time to explore the ‘Top of the World’ before returning to Milan by air-conditioned coach.
