Day 1: Zurich

Arrive from Paris at Zurich airport and check into your downtown hotel. Discover a hotel made up of nine carefully restored medieval dwellings. Each building has retained its own character and is adorned with magnificent works of art by famous artists such as Andy Warhol and Frank Lloyd. Once you’ve deposited your luggage in your room, you’ll discover traces of 700 years of history. Painted beams on the ceiling, artistic stone inlays, antique furniture… A unique and seductive atmosphere to open the ball of your Swiss stay. Discover beautiful Zurich by exploring the old town with its winding streets, boutiques and quaint cafés, visiting the Grossmünster, one of Zurich’s four great churches, or strolling along the famous Bahnhofstrasse for a spot of shopping.

Day 2: Zurich

Zurich is Switzerland’s largest city. It’s also a dynamic, cosmopolitan metropolis offering a unique combination of historic charm, modernity and exceptional quality of life. This morning, head to Lake Zurich for a pleasant stroll along its shores, followed by a visit to the Kunsthaus Zurich, the city’s main art museum, home to a vast and impressive collection of European works of art. Don’t miss the chance to grab a bite to eat at a small restaurant in the center, where you can sample Swiss specialties and get to know the locals!

Day 3: Zurich

On your last day in Zurich, head to the Swiss National Museum to find out more about Switzerland’s long and incomparable history, from its beginnings to the present day. Discover a place that showcases Switzerland’s different identities and the diversity of its history and culture, notably through temporary exhibitions on current themes.
Before leaving Zurich for Lucerne, take advantage of beautiful green spaces such as the Botanical Gardens or Lindenhof Park to relax before hitting the road.

Days 4 and 5: Lucerne

In Lucerne, settle into a splendid hotel in an exceptional setting on the shores of Lake Lucerne, with breathtaking views. You’ll find the rest and privacy you need for a successful stay. Relax in the outdoor pool, heated to 34° C, or just enjoy the breathtaking lake views from your suite, perfectly appointed for a comfortable and unforgettable stay.
Then discover the city of Lucerne, a picturesque lakeside town offering a unique combination of historic charm and natural beauty. This place has so much to offer, and here you’ll discover the authentic, charming identity of a Swiss town. You can choose to explore the Swiss Museum of Transport, visit the Glacier Gardens for a unique botanical experience, or take a boat to Vitznau and then the cogwheel train up Mount Rigi.
Finally, to cap off a fabulous two days in Lucerne, treat yourself to dinner in one of the restaurants along the shores of Lake Lucerne for a magnificent, soothing view.

Days 6 and 7: Bern

Reach Bern, the last stop on your Swiss itinerary. Drop off your luggage in a centrally-located house with a charming, uncluttered look. Dating back to 1888, this building and its staff will offer you all the help and advice you need during your stay. Berne has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983, and is dominated by imposing sandstone buildings that give it incomparable charm, and criss-crossed by narrow streets and 6 kilometers of arcades that make it unique. Discover the historic center and its medieval architecture, including the Zytglogge (clock tower) and Berne Cathedral. For something warmer, explore Bern’s History Museum to learn more about the city’s fascinating past. Or for a panoramic view of the city, climb the Rosengarten. Berne has plenty to surprise you, and hides many other wonders, such as its many museums and pleasant parks in which to stroll.
