Getting around

during your Holiday I can recommend you: - to explore St. Moritz and the Engadina by Bernina Express. Bernina Express in one of the most spectacular ways to cross the Alps that links up regions with different languages and cultures. This is not a rack railway and the train winds its way gently through splendid scenery. One of the highlights is the panoramic journey through the UNESCO World Heritage RhB. - tasting tour experience: food & wine tours in Piedmont, northern Italy, where some of the finest Italian wines are produced – Barolo, Barbaresco and Barbera to mention but a few. - discover Lago Maggiore: from Ascona and Locarno to Arona the lakeside road...
