Arrival from Italy

Convenient, fast, comfortable: Guests who wish to explore the charms of Swiss cities opt for the practical EuroCity connections from Milan, Genoa, Venice or Bologna.

Thanks to the Ceneri Base Tunnel in combination with the Gotthard Base Tunnel, the longest train tunnel in the world, it takes passengers just a bit over three hours to travel from the fashion centre of Milano to the heart of the no less sophisticated city of Zurich. Due to numerous connections daily, Switzerland is only “a stone’s throw” away from its southern neighbour.

The journey across the Alpine massif is delightful and quick: Direct trains run from Milan to Basel, Berne, Geneva, Lausanne, Lucerne, Lugano and Zurich. Genoa and Venice are also directly connected to Zurich. From Bologna, Zurich and Geneva are within reach in one go.
