Hi Nidhi12, welcome to MySwissAlps!

Would you want to do this as a day trip from Lucerne, returning to your accommodation the same afternoon or evening? In that case it's quite a challenge, as just a single trip Lucerne-Tirano over the Bernina Express route takes nearly 7 hours. So only if you leave very early and don't mind returning late, this is doable. You'd better plan an overnight stay along the route, e.g. in or near St. Moritz or Tirano. In that case you could even make a scenic round trip, returning via Locarno, Flüelen and Göschenen using the Wilhelm Tell Express-route.

Please use the pages below to find details on all options:
