This private tour of Switzerland and Italy is an ideal combination of villages, Alpine landscapes, great food, and luxury hotels in Switzerland and a stay in Lake Como at one of Italy's most beautiful 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.

Next, transfer with your private driver to Bern, the capital of Switzerland, for a private tour of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town. Explore the historic architecture and backstreets, and take in views over the rooftops of the historic center from a scenic spot in the hills. Continue to Interlaken, the gateway to the dramatic mountain landscapes of the Berner Oberland. One day, enjoy a privately guided excursion into the Swiss Alps aboard mountain trains. At the Sphinx observatory platform atop Jungfraujoch (elevation 11,388 feet), see enormous glaciers, impressive peaks such as the Eiger, and verdant valleys far below. Perhaps opt for hiking, tubing, sledding or other activities on the snow. Throughout the journey, stop in villages such as Wengen and Grindelwald to take in the spectacular views.

Next, stop in Brienz, a village known for wood carving, en route to Lucerne, a picture-perfect Swiss town on the shore of Lake Lucerne. Stay at one of Switzerland’s most impressive contemporary hotels in a room offering expansive views of the lake and nearby mountains. During private touring with your own guide, explore the highlights of the Old Town, including the Chapel Bridge, a landmark covered wooden bridge containing paintings of the city history. If desired, also visit museums such as the Kunstmuseum, Rosengart Collection or the Swiss Museum of Transport. One day, enjoy a privately guided scenic excursion in the region. Cruise across beautiful Lake Lucerne, passing lakeside farmhouses and small villages clustered below high peaks. Also, ride a cog railway up iconic Mount Pilatus for panoramic views over the lake and mountains. Perhaps opt for a lunch of Swiss cuisine at a restaurant on the mountain or go for a hike in the fresh mountain air.

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 touring elsewhere in Italy.
