Day 1

Following our Channel crossing to Calais, we complete the journey to our overnight dinner, bed and breakfast accommodation. (D)

Day 2

We complete the journey to our resort with a welcome drink on arrival, for our 2 nights dinner, bed and breakfast stay. (B,D)

Day 3

After breakfast we take a journey to Alpnachstad where we join the world’s steepest cogwheel railway. Mount Pilatus is the emblem of central Switzerland and it is to Pilatus Kulm that our little train is heading for as it winds its way up a 48 degree climb, through lush meadows carpeted with alpine flowers. When we reach the awe-inspiring summit we are rewarded with spectacular views over Lake Lucerne, as well as the Central and Bernese Alps. Our journey does not finish here as we continue by cable car down to Kriens where we re-join our coach to Lucerne. Lucerne is one of Switzerland’s prettiest cities and we’ll enjoy some free time here to explore before returning to our hotel. (B,D)

Day 4

Leaving our hotel this morning, we make our way back to Lucerne from where we board the Gotthard Panorama Express historic steamer.* Our 2.5 hour cruise takes us past picturesque villages and sleepy bays as we make our way to Flüelen. It is here that we disembark and board the world famous Gotthard Line and swiftly climb from 470m to 1100m towards Göschenen, taking us through the 15km tunnel where we emerge to the wonderful scenery of southern Switzerland. We continue our journey until we reach Locarno and here we disembark, we then travel to Lake Maggiore where we stay for the next three nights. (B,D)

Day 5

We have a day at leisure today to enjoy the beautiful resort of Stresa, which enjoys panoramic views across the lake. A boat trip to the Borromean Islands is highly recommended. (B,D)

Day 6

Today we travel east to Lake Como, where we will spend the day exploring the prettiest lake in northern Italy. Its breathtaking mountains provide a stunning backdrop to the magnificent gardens with their vast array of colour. We visit Villa Carlotta, with its beautiful art collections and botanical gardens before taking a return ferry to Bellagio, known as the ‘jewel of Lake Como’. (B,D)
