I am planning to travel on Sept 30 from Lugano to St. Moritz or Pontresina via the Bernina Express scenic train and need some help. We are eager to experience this famous “the highest railway in the Alps” .
1) From the train map and description in your website , I understand the route would be a bus from Lugano to Tirano ( Italy) and then the train from Chur to Pontresin/St. Moritz , am I correct ?
2) When I try the online timetable , it give me the route with connections via Bellinzona on ICN ( train?) , then Thusis on Bus , then Regio Express (train?) to St Moritz with total duration 3:53 hrs, and noted runs daily , not 26 Jun until 28 Aug 2016 (what does this mean?) . This doesn’t seem to be the Bernina Express route via Chur. How do I find the one via Tirano ?
3) I am interested (as it’s direct ) but confused about the option using Palm Express bus ride . Would I miss the scenic views & ride thru the glaciers experience highlighted in the Bernina Express ? I try the online timetable for Sep 30 , it shows Lugano, Stazione Nord dep 12:05 St Moritz, Bahnhof arrive 15:45 Duration: 3:48; runs daily, 25. Oct until 9. Dec 2016 Mo, Sa, Su; not 10. Jun. Does the schedule good for Sept 30 ?
Please if someone can share me the experience.
