Alpine Splendor: Switzerland and Austria

September 5-18, 2024

From $6,792 Per Person Based on Double Occupancy. (Airfare included from select cities.)

As your small group discovers mountain villages and European cities, cruises on glassine lakes, and ascends snowcapped summits, the region's history - and beauty - enchant one and all. This captivating 14-day Swiss and Austrian exploration begins with lovely Lucerne, its namesake lake, and a cogwheel train ride up Mt. Pilatus. Take the legendary Glacier Express to Zermatt, gateway to the Swiss Alps, and ride the Gornergratbahn, Europe's highest open-air railway, to Gornergrat's summit to admire the majestic Matterhorn.

With three nights in lakeside Lugano, see Bellinzona's iconic Castelgrande, a UNESCO site, and lunch alfresco at a grotto restaurant. Enjoy a leisurely Lake Lugano cruise and a tasting at the Cellars of the Prince of Liechtenstein. A three-night stay in Salzburg, with an intimate Baroque performance and visits to the impressive Hohensalzburg castle and the Nazis' Eagle's Nest retreat, concludes the journey.

Savor Austria's capital, Vienna, with an optional 4-day/3-night post-tour extension.
