Hello and thank you for the info to my original post. I have been reading all the info about the Bernina Express and got myself so confused as to using a pass or not, and which one, etc, etc. Anyhow, there are now 6 of us travelling and I think the best way is to just book the BEx , a hotel in Sameden, and the Bus back into Italy (destination Milan).
To put me on the right track...(no pun intended), how far ahead can I book the BEx? I read somewhere it was 3 months. I tried to book it for September through the SBB website and it seems like it was only 1 month ahead. Also, does the BEx actually stop at Samedan?? The route map show that it goes right through Samedan, but the timetable showed that you had to get off the train at Pontresina, then BUS to Samedan. Can someone also please give us some idea which cable cars in the St Moritz/Sameden area that are worth going on??
Thank you Annika for the tip about the hotels offering free 'Mountain Railways' if you stay two nights or more. Does this mean the cable cars??
Thanks for putting me out of my miserable confusion. :) Kind Regards.
