Travel Blogs from St. Moritz
Regional train from Varenna to Tirano (good thing we bought tickets in Venice because there isn't anyone at the Varenna train station).
Views are lots of tiered vineyards going up the mountain to beautiful homes. Every town has beautiful churches whose steeples are visible from miles away. Quite a few old castles.
... roads are not as good as our major freeways yet they put us to sleep at 100 Kms per hour. We arrived at Chur just after 3pm and found our hotel. It is a cute little city and is actually the oldest town in Switzerland. Had the best hot chocolate in the loveliest chocolate shop. It is very close to St Moritz and is surrounded by mountains however due to the rain they are difficult to see. We head off tomorrow to Bellagio and stay put until Tuesday morning. Well earned ...
... is not particularly elegant, nor difficult. Up and down, side to side, round and round, and combinations of the above. Nor is it particularly safe when done on a bike, but this is the only proper way to do it, I'm told. A bout of the bum dance was how we farewelled Lichtenstein, but the country was also memorable for the nasty climb up to the castle, coupled with the realisation afterwards that the view of said castle was actually much better from below. Lastly, ...
... around the town and checked out the shops, Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, Cartier, Jimmy Choo. Yes the place is made for the rich and famous. We went past a hotel that in winter cost about $1200 AUD per night with a minimum of 11 nights stay.... Back to reality and we wandered down to the lake and did a bit of a walk, yet more lovely scenery. The waters in Switzerland tend to be green, this is due to the minerals in them. They are also very ...
... the bus and over more mountains on our was to St Moritz. The Julier Pass was very scenic but a little different from other alp areas, less trees and more exposed rocks. The photos don't do justice to the scenery over here. Tonight we had drinks in the hotel bar "complements of Insight" and then a group dinner in the restaurant. The purpose of the drinks was to allow the tour director to do a bit of company promotion and praise those that had done more than one Insight ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Hotel has no transportation service from train station. It's a long, steep uphill walk; out of the question to walk with this luggage; taxi was 16-francs.
This turned out to be a great place; however, no one was there when we arrived. There was a sign on door to call them only we have no phone. Luckily, a couple from Alberta walked in and they contacted Susanne via their computer. We heard a phone ring, and the man came out of the restaurant and gave us the key. Met Susanne later; such a delightful person.
Room is very nice; larger than expected; very small bathroom. Very clean. Interesting modern frescoes on walls. Great views of St Moritz from up here.
Great breakfast--our first place with the Swiss muesli and all the nuts/fruits.
Ate here for dinner--two people told us this is the best pizza in town; it was good.
