Prices explained

Prices explained

At Rail Europe we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Rail Europe searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

Bernina Pass

The train from St Moritz (Switzerland) to Tirano (Italy) follows the Bernina Railway, which in 2008 was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. This is the only north-south rail route from Switzerland to Italy that really climbs over the Alps rather than burrowing under the mountains in a tunnel. You are in for a real treat on the journey from St Moritz to Tirano, as the train tackles formidable gradients and passes snowfields before dropping down steeply into Italy.

The train service on this route is part of the narrow-gauge Rhaetian Railway network. A handful of trains each day are branded Bernina Express. The trains called the Bernina Express are aimed at tourists. The regular trains on the route are just as fast and often much less crowded than the Bernina Express.

St. Moritz to Tirano

The trains on the Bernina route leave from the main Rhaetian Railway station in St Moritz. A long escalator links the town centre with the station. In Tirano, the trains run right through the streets of this small town to terminate at the Rhaetian Railway station, which is just adjacent to the main Italian station. The latter has regular onward services to Milan.

There are 16 intermediate stations between St Moritz and Tirano, but most of these are request stops. In practice, trains may stop only a handful of times on the journey. The entire route is spectacular; take your camera. Train travel doesn’t get much better than this.
