Grand Train Tour of Switzerland

3 nights in a hotel incl. breakfast and train tickets along the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland (route Chur - Bernina Express - Lugano - Lucerne), incl. arrival and return journey.

This tour delivers on its promises: First, imposing glaciers take turns with sparkling mountain lakes in front of the ceiling-high windows. Shortly afterwards, the train winds its way down to Italy, where you can continue to Lugano by bus. Palm trees, vineyards and mild temperatures dominate this stretch. Immerse yourself in a little “dolce vita” before tackling the historic Gotthard Line to Luzern the following day. A truly picturesque and extremely varied round trip by train.
