Travel: Day in Switzerland

Good morning from Tirano, Italy.

Yesterday was a pure delight!  We took the Bernina Express, a UNESCO World Heritage train from Tirano, Italy to Bernina Diavolezza in the Swiss Alps.

The train station was 7,000 feet above sea level.  We then took the cable car up to 10,000 feet.  The views were literally breathtaking.  It was an exceptional experience and encourage all travelers in the area to experience it.

And here are some of our favorite pictures.

Our train began in Tirano. The group of 16 traveled in our own compartment.
Up, up to 7,000 feet and exceptional views.

  3. Excellent pictures. Thank you! The larch trees are splendid. What a great tour you are having. it would take us at least three hours by train to see the region. We will save all these photos.
