Scenic Europe & Bernina Express with Extended Stay in London
About Bernina-Express, Switzerland
This memorable vacation starts in London and travels to Brussels for an overnight. Continue through Germany’s scenic Rhineland, spend the night in the Würzburg area, and discover charming medieval Rothenburg along the Romantic Road. Next up: the beautiful landscapes of Bavaria, a visit to King Ludwig’s fairytale Neuschwanstein Castle, then Austria, Italy, and Switzerland. The included panoramic alpine train ride on the spectacular Bernina Express, which leaves from St. Moritz and crosses the Bernina mountain range into the Italian Valtellina, is an unforgettable experience. Enjoy a change of scenery as you arrive in subtropical Lake Lugano, then back over the mountains to Lucerne, Interlaken, and Gruyère in the Swiss Alps. Spend the night in international Geneva, head north with a stop in medieval Beaune, and continue to Paris for two overnights. A Channel ferry returns you to London for one last overnight and the finale of your trip.
