The first stop of the Trenino Rosso del Bernina train, which links Tirano to Saint Moritz, is just ten minutes away from our hotel.
With the landscape changing and evolving behind each bend, this magical train will give you the chance to enjoy breathtaking views. It also calls at a number of stations, which means you can visit a wealth of true Alpine sights.
The railway was awarded the status of Unesco World heritage in 2008.
Starting off from 429 metres asl in Tirano, you will reach 2253 metres asl in 2 hours and 20 minutes, travelling over the Passo Bernina pass, surrounded by stunning perennial glaciers.
The dramatic setting varies according to season. In winter, surrounded by snow-capped mountains, the train will exceed your expectations by climbing extreme heights drawn by its "Schleuder", special rotary burr snowplough engines.
For the summer we recommend a seat on a convertible carriage: it is just like touching the sky!
