Don't worry - the Gotthard Panorama Express isn't really anything special. The same itinerary has been available for the past 100 years using lake steamer and regular trains!
The options on the Gotthard route are:
- Use the old mountain route on ordinary regional trains - for this you take a train from Zurich or Luzern to Erstfeld, or a boat from Luzern to Fluelen then a train Fluelen - Erstfeld, then the regional train Erstfeld - Göschenen - old tunnel - Airolo - Bellinzona - Lugano - Milano
- Use the new base tunnel (the longest tunnel in the world), the Intercity trains run Arth Goldau - Bellinzona non stop
