From the capital of the canton of Vaud, we follow the magnificent shores of Lake Geneva, the famous vineyards of Lavaux and the towns of Vevey and Montreux before reaching Villeneuve.

From Lausanne and the port of Ouchy, we stay close to the lake until Lutry. You then climb up to cross the magnificent Lavaux vineyard, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There is a breathtaking view of the lake all the way to the Alps! We then descend through the town of Vevey to reach the lakeside again and then the town of Montreux.

Before arriving in Villeneuve, admire the Chillon castle, set on its rock. It is a site occupied since the Bronze Age!
