Hi dj,

It's a tight schedule but it can be done. You best consult the timetable to see your options exactly. I would advice to stay in Chur the first night as the Bernina Express departs quite early (8h32).

Hotels, city maps and sightseeing suggestions can be found on these pages about Lugano and Lucerne.

Does this help?

Arno,
thanks for the reply.
my friend is staying in zurich and have to stay in zurich,so only option is to take the early train from zurich to chur and take either bernia express to tirano or local train and from there bus to lugano.
Is local train as fast as bernia express to reach tirano and do they use the same scenic route.is there any option to travel from tirano to lugano other than the bus,incase if we miss the bus and we cannot get reservation on the bus.
again,thanks in advance for the feedback.
Regards,
Dj.

Hi dj,

The local trains from Chur to Tirano use the same route, so your view will be identical. You can best check the timetable to see your options in detail.

The Swiss Pass and Swiss Flexi Pass cover the same routes and trains. A Swiss Pass would be best if you travel a lot (nearly every day). The Swiss Flexi Pass would be best if you travel for e.g. 4 days during your stay, and only do short or no trips in between those days. Just follow the links for all details about the passes, FAQ's and purchase options.
