We will be traveling through Switzerland next year and our final trip back to Italy will be on the Bernina Espress. I see there is an option for regular seating OR first class when making reservations. Can anyone tell me the different between the two and is it worth the extra cost to upgrade to 1st class?? Thank you

Hi GAgrest, and welcome to MySwissAlps!

You can look under the heading What is the difference between 1st and 2nd class? on the following page to see a description of the difference between classes:

Whether or not paying for an upgrade is worthwhile is something to decide for yourself, because opinions vary :-)

There are some photos of the inside of first and second class Bernina Express carriages on the following site:
