Known for its good food and lively culture, Le Prese and nearby Poschiavo are home to the glittering waters of Lake Poschiavo. Nestled halfway between the Bernina Region's Alpine glacier and the Mediterranean-like vineyard terraces of the Veltlin, this Italian-speaking valley is popular with walkers and foodies alike.
Le Prese is best explored by rail aboard the Bernina Express. One of the most spectacular train journeys in the world, expect sheer unbridled joy as you weave your way past glaciers, palm trees (indeed you see both) and other incredible scenery that dreams are made of. It’s not hard to see why part of the route was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status.
The journey doesn't just impress with its incredible scenery, the simple pleasure of ordering traditional favorites such as fondue and other regional specialties served in cozy dining cars, are just another way to charm you in the moment.
