This morning, we visit Chillon Castle, immortalised by Lord Byron's 'Prisoner of Chillon'. For nearly four centuries, this water fortress was the residence of the Counts of Savoy and an important stop for traders. Our next stop is the 15th-century vineyards of Cave Champ de Clos in Chexbres, where we'll 'Connect With Locals' over a Be My Guest lunch. Continue your journey to the resort town of Zermatt, set against the backdrop of the snow-capped Matterhorn.Buffet Breakfast, Lunch
