SIP: Mountains Soar & Wines Pour
Visit the lovely Lavaux region, one of Switzerland's most beautiful regions - carved by the Rhone Glacier and the masterful masonry of 12th-century Cistercian monks who built kilometers of stone walls and terraces that are still cherished and tended by the winegrowers today. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to bountiful vineyards where renowned wines are nurtured by sunlight reflected by the waters of Lake Geneva and the warmth of the stone walls by night. Hop on a Swiss train to experience mountains and the magic of Switzerland's second-largest wine-growing canton and take a stroll around the timeless vineyards!
TASTE: Swiss Chocolate & Cheese, Please!
The only thing more inspiring than Switzerland's stunning scenery is its food! A sweet adventure awaits you at the Maison Cailler chocolaterie (chocolate shop). Explore the story of Swiss chocolate through a series of interactive, multi-sensory experiences, and uncover a few secrets along the way! Continue on to the picturesque town of Gruyères for a taste. Stroll through its pedestrian center with Medieval cobblestones and fountains. A real charmer!
