Bucket list DREAM SWISS SKI & TOUR trip! 2021 ITINERARY: we’ll start in Zurich for 2 nights in global finance city, a cultural, social & historical melting pot w/Chocolate producers & stained glass windows by Chagall. Next, we move to Lucerne for 2 nights with its well-preserved medieval core, elegant historic buildings & genial atmosphere (walking tour in each city). Next, we move by train to Zermatt to meet other Florida Ski Council clubs for 6 nights with optional Day Excursions &/or skiing/boarding. In Zermatt, we’ll be staying at the foot of Matterhorn (iconic pyramid shaped peak) in a luxury, eclectic, fun, family owned & operated EUROPEAN hotel! Ending the trip w/taking a very scenic train from Zermatt to Geneva, stay overnight and depart following day. Thus, we’re starting in NE Switzerland with mostly German influence, moving southwest toward French influence, both in language & cuisine. Ending with clean & comfortable train ride with beautiful scenery, passing through the deepest cleft valley with views of the highest mountains as we travel to Geneva.
