Day 2 Leave for Gruyères, Chillon and the Matterhorn Village of Zermatt

Start your day with the highlights of Geneva, the ‘city of gardens', nestled at the end of its lake. See the Jet D'Eau, Floral Clock and Reformation Monument. Now relax and enjoy the enchanting Swiss scenery, as you drive along Lake Geneva with views across to the French Alps. Head for the lush rolling dairy pastures of the Swiss countryside, famous for cheese manufacturing. Visit Gruyères, a picture-perfect medieval town with a castle, set on a small hill. Return to the shores of Lake Geneva to visit medieval Chillon Castle, former home to the Counts of Savoy, immortalised by Byron's ‘Prisoner of Chillon'. Continue along the Rhone Valley, whose high summer temperatures support vines and other fruits. The final stage of your journey is by cogwheel train to the traffic-free mountain resort of Zermatt. At last, feast your eyes on the distinctive triangular silhouette of the Matterhorn! Tonight, enjoy a stroll in the clean mountain air to your chosen restaurant on your Dine-Around evening.
