The journey will last almost 3 hours: a never-ending succession of landscapes, from the fairy-tale Swiss pastures to the everlasting snow. Boarding this fascinating train one can’t get bored! We’ll run along villages, small hamlets, rivers, lakes and glaciers, all the way to St. Moritz, our journey’s final stop. Now it’s time for lunch: to those who forgot to bring their own packed lunch, we suggest to taste the local offer: a German cuisine combined with the Italian and the French ones. Just pay attention to the bill: St. Moritz it’s also known as one of the most expensive location in Switzerland! Tour this renowned village and discover both its sides: Dorf, the town centre overlooking the namesake lake, where you can find the most luxury Hotels, and Bad, where the Thermal Center belongs. You may walk along the lakeside, taking a time to admire the wonderful landscape, or visit the town highlights such as the Town Hall, the Leaning Tower dated back to the 12th century as well as San Maurizio Square with the Church of Futura nearby the Old School (now a Library).
