ITINERARY

PRICING FROM

Please contact Exeter International for specific pricing and availability. 

Day 1
Arrival | Zurich

Arrival into Zurich airport. Your driver will meet you outside of baggage claim and customs and will transfer you to your deluxe hotel in the heart of the city.

Once known mostly as the epicenter of Swiss banking, traveling to Zurich today is far from staid and conservative, offering a truly multi-faceted experience.

With the River Limmat running through to Lake Zurich, the city is framed by a stunning mountain backdrop. Between May and October activities on the water are extremely popular for visitors and locals alike – from swimming in Lake Zurich, visiting a lido bar or simply taking a boat tour of the city to enjoy the medieval architecture from a different perspective, Zurich offers something for everyone.

Day 2
Zurich | Zurich

Today, you will meet your guide and driver for an overview city tour.  Zurich is a wonderful city to explore because most major sights are close together along the lake and river or are accessible by public transport.

Walk through the winding, narrow cobblestone streets of Zurich’s historic Altstadt, or “Old Town”. Along the way, your guide will point out historic homes and guild halls, some of which have existed since the 1400’s. Then, take to Neiderdorfstrasse, a pedestrian-only neighborhood that runs parallel to the river for nearly a mile and a half through the heart of Old Town to the iconic twin-spired Grossmünster Church.

Cross the river back to Fraumünster Church, built on the remains of a former abbey for women founded in 853. Built in 1898 and renovated in 1911, this Romanesque parish church with its distinct Tiffany Blue spire dominates the skyline in Alstadt. Walk inside with your guide to view the five large stained glass windows designed and installed by March Chagall in 1970. Each window depicts a Christian story in his own unique style, all designed with one dominant color that radiates light through the choir hall in a rainbow-like array.

Later, enjoy a walk along Banhofstrasse, Zurich’s main downtown street and spiritual heart of the city. This promenade, lined with some of the best shopping Europe has to offer, stretches from the Zurich’s main train station all the way to the banks of Lake Zurich.
