What To Expect
Cruise past impressive monuments like the Baroque Jesuit Church and Chapel Bridge while listening to interesting narration from your erudite guide. Receive insightful recommendations on where to explore during your segment of free time and then disembark the coach to stroll the quaint city streets independently.
Wile away the hours in one of Lucerne’s many charismatic cafés; famed for its thriving café culture, the city is the perfect place to kick back with an aromatic beverage and traditional Swiss lunch (own expense).
At a time that suits your schedule, head down to the shores of Lake Lucerne to redeem your complimentary cruise ticket. Climb aboard a modern boat and listen to interesting audio commentary as you explore the shimmering surface of Lake Lucerne.
Stroll around the ancient city center to see historical relics like the 14th-century Musegg Wall, or browse the artistic exhibition within the Richard Wagner Museum.
At a prearranged time, reconvene with your guide and group and relax during the return journey to Zurich.
