The Best of Switzerland
For mountain-lovers, this vacation is a dream come true. A full circle brings you from Zürich where you will enjoy a welcome dinner, an orientation of the old town, and a visit to a traditional chocolate confectionary for a true taste of Switzerland, to the Principality of Liechtenstein on the Rhine River, and over Julier Pass to ritzy St. Moritz in the Alps. Travel via Italy and Lake Como to subtropical Lugano and Stresa, then by way of the Simplon Pass to Täsch. Board the mountain train to reach picturesque Zermatt, where a special treat is a group picture with a real St. Bernard dog with the Matterhorn towering above you. A scenic drive through the Rhône Valley brings you to Lake Geneva. Stop in the capital Berne for a guided walking tour including the Bear Park, and prepare for a real highlight: enjoy lunch at a traditional working farm. Via Interlaken end in picturesque Lucerne, the heart of Switzerland and William Tell country, for a relaxing two-night stay and another highlight: a trip to the top of Mount Pilatus, where an alphorn demonstration will be held. And you get a special souvenir cap as well. A farewell dinner at a local restaurant is a fitting way to celebrate the success of your unforgettable Swiss vacation!
