Milan

A scenic Swiss Alps and Italian adventure, with stays in Chur and Milan, plus a stunning Bernina Express train experience – includes breakfast, flights and train and bus travel

Chur

Your trip begins in Chur – Switzerland’s oldest town – with a two-night stay at Hotel ABC. During your time here, why not consider going for a day's hike, exploring the Old Town, or pick up a new timepiece at one of the town's watch shops.

Other attractions include learning about the region's history at the Rätisches Museum, visiting the iconic Martinskirche church or going hiking in the surrounding countryside.

Bernina Express

Connecting Chur to Poschiavo (Switzerland) and Tirano (Italy), the Bernina Express train’s classic route promises the magnificent views of the Graubünden canton from the north to south. This is arguably the most spectacular way to cross the Alps, blending ideally with the alpine landscapes around the Albula and Bernina Passes. You'll also pass through 55 tunnels and over 196 bridges along the way - don't forget that camera!

Upon arrival into the UNESCO-listed town of Tirano, you'll then hop aboard a bus to Lugano, and from there another train to Milan.

Milan

A paradise for shoppers, fashionistas and foodies alike, make the most of the Milan's many delights at the Liberty-style Doria Grand Hotel in the northeast of the city. Be sure to visit the city's grand Gothic cathedral – the Duomo – which lies at the geographical heart of this one-time Imperial Roman capital.

Other sights you can visit over your one or two nights here include the Santa Maria delle Grazie for Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper, the Royal Palace of Milan for classic and contemporary art exhibitions, and the Quadrilatero d'Oro for innumerable flagships by most of the world's major fashion houses.
