Arrival from Italy

Map – Arrival from Italy

Convenient, fast, comfortable: Guests who wish to explore the charms of Swiss cities opt for the practical EuroCity connections to travel from Italy. Direct trains run from Milano and Venice to Basel, Berne, Geneva, Lausanne, Lucerne, Lugano and Zurich.

Thanks to the Gotthard Base Tunnel, the longest train tunnel in the world, it takes passengers a mere three and a half hours to travel from the fashion centre of Milano to the heart of the no less sophisticated city of Zurich. Due to roughly 16 connections daily, Switzerland is only “a stone’s throw” away from its southern neighbour. That’s how delightful and quick the journey across the Alpine massif can be.
