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, renowned for its panoramic views, 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 tour and tasting at a local winery. A three-night stay in Salzburg, attending a classical music concert and visits to the impressive Hohensalzburg Fortress 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.
