Detailed Description

Give in to the splendor of Switzerland and the beauty of its bordering countries during your 7-day highlights tour of the Alps. You will experience a sensation like never before when within view of the Matterhorn. Historic towns continue to shine with culture and embody the lifestyle of the mountains. Rivers reflect the towering church spires and the indulgent aroma of fresh chocolate seems to fill each city you visit. Your tour begins with your arrival in Zurich as your private transfer meets you at Zurich International Airport to escort you to a luxurious hotel in the heart of the city.

After you settle in, your guide will meet you in the hotel lobby for an introductory tour of Old Town and Zurich’s picturesque streets and enjoy a tasting of luscious chocolate concoctions at a famous cafe. The following day, you will be collected from the hotel for a remarkable scenic drive along Zurich and Walen Lakes. In Liechtenstein, visit the capital city and small towns for a view of the contemporary and historic architecture as they stand side-by-side. Continue to St. Moritz in the lush mountainside near the Italian Alps.

Continue for a visit to the stunning water and landscape of Lake Como as you cross into Italy and take advantage of the secluded region. In the afternoon, return to Switzerland at Lugano for a fabulous boat ride along the water. Next day, return to Italy once again to discover the charms of Lake Maggiore and the Stresa region.
