Tirano - Italy

Another card sent by Joanna and also from a UNESCO missing site, this one from Italy. Now I'm only missing Castel del Monte to have all the italian sites.

Tirano  is a town in Valtellina, located in the province of Sondrio in northern Italy.

Tirano has two neighboring railway stations. The metre gauge station, is operated by the Rhaetian Railway (RhB). The line of the Bernina Railway connects St. Moritz (Canton of Graubünden/Switzerland) with Tirano. The complete line was opened in 1910. In 2008 the Bernina Railway as well as the Albula Railway were recorded from UNESCO in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. - in: wikipedia
