Bernina Express Rail Holiday

As the highest mountain railway in the Alps, the Bernina Express connects the towering glaciers of the mountains to the palm-shaded towns of sunny Italy. Spanning from the Swiss region of Graubunden to Tirano in the Italian Veltlin, this spectacular railway line co-exists in perfect harmony with its majestic mountain setting. Running for 122km, passing through 55 tunnels and crossing 196 bridges and viaducts, the Bernina Express line is a masterpiece of engineering. It is little wonder that its unity with the surrounding landscape was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008.
