    We spend the day in the lovely town of Lucerne, surrounded by breath-taking alpine scenery. Lucerne has long since charmed its visitors, on account of this beautiful setting and its many historic places of interest. Explore the delightful old town and take time to walk across the 14th century Chapel Bridge. See the Lion Monument created in memory of the heroic death of the Swiss Guard soldiers in the Tuileries Gardens in Paris and the Zytturm, which boasts the oldest public clock in Lucerne. Dating from 1535, the clock always strikes the hour one minute ahead of all the other clocks in the city.

    During the day an optional cruise on the lake will be available. The cruise is a round trip lasting for approximately 1 hour. We return to our hotel this afternoon allowing time for to prepare for our evening meal.

This may mean that facilities in towns, villages and hotels may close early.
