Then continue to Vevey and discover Chaplin’s world: a site dedicated to Charlie Chaplin, the artist and man. Embark on an extraordinary adventure across time and through the magical world of cinema. Learn more about one of the most surprising artists of the 20th century through the sets of his greatest films at the Hollywood-style studio.
Next, jump on an open trolley tour through the World Heritage Site of Lavaux. Also called 'the wine road,' this road is part of the famous grand tour of Switzerland: a vineyard region with terraces. You will have a break in the middle of the vines to taste some local products such as cheese, wine, or grape juice. Just before lunch (own expense), take a tour of Vevey city, Nestlé headquarters, and the covered market.
In the afternoon, board an old steamer boat and cruise across scenic Lake Geneva. You will arrive to the Castle of Chillon, the most visited castle in Switzerland, from the 11th century. Chateau de Chillon has a beautiful location on a small island in the far western end of Lake Geneva between Montreux and Villeneuve. This romantic castle was long of strategic importance in controlling trade in the Lake Geneva region, and its dungeons inspired Lord Byron.
Your last stop will be in Montreux, a glamorous tourist resort. Learn about all the great artists who have visited this place, such as Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, BB King, Ray Charles, and more. The emblem of the city is the statue of Freddie Mercury, who lived several years in Montreux and recorded his last album with the group Queen in the Mountain Studio, which is in the Montreux Casino. You will have the chance to visit Queen’s old studio and wander through the streets full of fancy shops and landmarks of the famous jazz festival.
After a full day of sightseeing, your tour will conclude with the ride back to Geneva.
