Venice-St. Moritz Tour
The Venice-St. Moritz tour is a new railway and postbus trip launched in 2008. It links the lagoon city of Venice on the Adriatic with Olympic St. Moritz (1,856 m altitude) in the Swiss Alps – as well as with six UNESCO World Heritage sites and the Swiss National Park. The trip can be made in either direction throughout the year and takes around 8 hours depending on the timetable.
