Amsterdam to Milan (including Glacier or Bernina Express)

Jump to last reply

Hello, We will be traveling in Europe from mid-late April/early May. We plan to spend about a week in the Utrecht/Amsterdam area (including Keukenhof for tulips). We would then like to end up in Northern Italy (possibly Milan or Torino) to then train/drive to Tuscany (probably driving down along the coast).

Here is my question: we'd love to be able to fly from the Amsterdam area to somewhere in Switzerland that would then allow us to see some of the alps by train as we head to Italy. Ideally, we'd like to take either the Glacier or Bernina Express ((those routes look amazing)) for that latter part of the trip. I've done a bunch of searching online already but am still not sure what might be the best options for cheap flight to somewhere that sets us up for a wonderful scenic train trip. We can take 1-3 days to do this -- we don't like to feel rushed in our travel, but are also happy to keep moving.

Thoughts? Many thanks.
H
