thanks for your prompt replies. Very helpful, trying to plan this trip was doing my head in! I see we have to pay 13 Euros for the Bus seat on the BEX coach Lugano to Tirano. and 11.50 Euros from Tirano to St Moritz on BEX train.
With the train from Como which I can't reserve a seat on ..... is it from Como S. Giovanni station? it shows as RegioExpress 25506 Como S. Giovanni Departure 07:48 Chiasso Arrival 07:52 Departure 07:55 Mendrisio 8.03 Lugano Platform 3 8.18am
We thought to take this train to give us time in Lugano to transfer to the Bernina Express Coach. Plus, if any problem, there is still the next train departure which will have us in Lugano at 9.18am.
Do we just show our Eurail Pass on the RegioExpress 25506 train when we board? Or do we need to show something at the Train ticket office in Como before boarding? We will be staying in Como for a couple of nights, but being a Saturday, I was concerned the office would not be open.
We are looking at travelling this way, as we feel it will be more scenic then returning to Milan via train, and train from Milan to Tirano to meet the Bernina express. What is your opinion on this statement?
