Travel Tips for Poschiavo
Approaching by train from the north
I strongly recommend that you travel by train coming from the north if possible. Making the steep descent the views are spectacular. You will see the valley and Poschiavo from almost a bird's eye view as well as the lake and the distant mountains which lie in Italy. It gives you a feeling why there is this unique culture here in Switzerland.
This part of Poschiavo is a good half hour uphill walk away if you go there directly. The village has a very small old center and a pretty church.
We did actually a loop walk from the Santa Maria church uphill to the right towards a farm, then had a view of La Prese and the lake before turning left to Cologna. Then we walked straight down the main road back to downtown Poschiavo.
Checking out where the ancestors came from
In the mid 1800s my wifes ancestors made the journey from Switzerland to Australia looking for a new start in life and so our trip would have lacked something if we did not pay a visit to a place we had spoken much about but never thought we would see. What a beautiful part of the world.
"Heading up the road for San Carlo"
We wanted to find the cemetary of San Carlo where some of loretta's relies were buried and so headed off for a nice 3-4 k walk, hoping to get back in time to catch our train back to Chur
