A trip to Switzerland during the Advent season provides magical emotions, with cities that dress up for the holidays and come alive with Christmas markets, where you can get lost among local crafts and traditional gastronomic products: Montreux, with its 150 chalets on the shores of Lake Geneva; Bern, which hosts markets in its elegant squares; and Lausanne, with the most beautiful living nativity scene in Switzerland.

Meeting of participants at the agreed place and time and departure to Milan by shuttle service. Upon arrival, we meet the chaperone and the rest of the group and depart for the Grand Tour coach trip to Switzerland, passing through Chiasso and the Gotthard tunnel. Stops for refreshments and free lunch are planned along the way. We stop in Lucerne, on Lake Lucerne. We then reach Bern where dinner awaits us.
In the morning we visit with our guide Bern, the capital of Switzerland and the country's only UNESCO World Heritage city. We pass through its small historic center, a succession of small houses and arcades with elegant stores and curious trap doors leading to old cellars, now converted into boutiques, restaurants and cabarets. After the visit we can wander around Bern's famous Christmas markets, and after a free lunch we continue to Gruyères, known for its gruyere cheese, where we visit the castle of the same name that holds evidence of eight centuries of history, architecture, Renaissance furnishings and some paintings by Camille Corot. We arrive in Lausanne in the evening and have dinner.
We set off for Montreux and, aboard a quaint little cogwheel train, ascend in about an hour to the 2042-meter Rochers de Naye mountain, where we can admire a breathtaking view of Lake Geneva stretching all the way to Mont Blanc. We return by small train to Montreux for free lunch, and here we have the opportunity to visit Switzerland's most famous Christmas markets. In the afternoon we return to Lausanne, where we have some free time to devote to Christmas shopping and walks along the lakefront. Dinner is free.
Before returning to Italy we stop in Vevey, a town whose most famous inhabitant was the actor Charlie Chaplin, who spent the last 25 years of his life here. A monument has been erected on the lakeshore in his honor. Visit then the medieval castle of Chillon. Here, with the support of audio guides, we can visit what was the residence and lucrative customs station of the Counts of Savoy for nearly four centuries. After free lunch we return to Italy via the St. Bernard Tunnel and Aosta. We arrive in Milan in the afternoon and continue to our hometown by shuttle service.
