Need help with logistics from Verona to Tirano to catch Bernina Express.

Jump to last reply

Hi fabulous Fodorites I need some expert guidance. Thank you in advance you are all always so helpful.
Here is my problem, we are wanting to take the Bernina Express train as part of our final leg of 3 1/2 week Italian journey. We are planning to be in Verona for 2 nights then drive up to Tirano to catch train . My thought was to just take small bags and leave most luggage in Verona. Train to St. Moritz, spend one night, train back to Tirano, drive back to Verona and collect bags. We could either spend another night there or head to our final destination of Venice. Is there a more logical way to make this journey?? I have tried to look at doing the whole thing by train but seems we would have to back track to Milan. Another consideration was to leave bags somewhere between Verona and Tirano then return there to spend night before heading to Venice. We will have a car but could leave it a variety of places and just train the rest of the way. I am open to any suggestion. And thank you again for your time.
P.S. I have also read of different trains back over the alps so as not to repeat the journey. Any thoughts on that?
