This private tour of Switzerland and Italy is an ideal combination of beautiful villages, alpine landscapes, great food and luxury hotels.

Begin in Lausanne and the beautiful Lake Geneva region. Stay at the elegant Beau-Rivage Palace—one of the best luxury hotels in Switzerland—among lush parkland on the lakeshore. One day, take a private excursion in the surrounding region to visit Chateau de Chillon, Switzerland’s most interesting castle, and the Lavaux wine region, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of 800-year-old terraced vineyards that skirt the edge of Lake Geneva and offer dramatic views of the Alps. Artisans of Leisure will arrange for you to enjoy exclusive activities such as private wine tasting and a private chocolate making experience at a local confectioner. Another day, enjoy a private excursion to Gruyeres, an atmospheric medieval hill town. Artisans of Leisure will arrange activities such as a tour of a cheese-making workshop and tasting of local cheeses, including the region’s renowned Gruyere cheese. Also, enjoy reservations for a fondue or raclette lunch at one of our favorite local restaurants. Other options include touring a renowned chocolate factory; visiting Chaplin’s World, the former house and estate of Charlie Chaplin; exploring the Olympic Museum or the historic center of Lausanne; or spending time at the hotel’s excellent spa, restaurants and leisure facilities.

Continue to Zermatt, home of the Matterhorn, one of the most iconic mountains in the world. Tour the historic wooden buildings in the town center, and visit the Matterhorn Museum to learn about the traditional local lifestyle and the human drama surrounding the majestic mountain that looms over the region. Then, take a cog railway up to Gornergrat, the best place to take in views of the Matterhorn, as well as the glaciers, mountain valleys and villages below. Another day, enjoy privately guided touring and hiking in the hills or valleys around Zermatt or opt for a private via ferrata excursion through beautiful Gorner Gorge, including rappelling, climbing and zip lining. Artisans of Leisure will also arrange lunch reservations at a restaurant with scenic views.

Next, you will be transferred through the Alps with spectacular views to Lake Como, Italy. Stay at the lakeside Villa d’Este, one of the most acclaimed luxury resorts in Europe. One day, enjoy a private boat excursion to the picturesque town of Bellagio to explore the beautiful backstreets and exquisite gardens of Villa Melzi. During free time, relax at Villa d’Este’s legendary pool (which floats on the lake), stroll through the romantic gardens of the resort, and enjoy the extensive spa and leisure options.

This tour can be extended to include additional time in Italy or France.
