CENTRAL SWISS ALPS
ALPINE PASS ROUTE
Leave Zurich towards the Central Swiss Alps and pass Lake Lucerne. Depending on the season choose your itinerary:

Your carefully selected scenic route will take you past wide green meadows, hazy-blue lakes and rollin hills over the most scenic high alpine routes of Switzerland.

Once you've reached your hotel at Lake Como it is time to relax and enjoy the tranquility of this unique place.

ALPINE PASS ROUTE
Breakfast on the terrace of your hotel overlooking the lake will be an enchanting experience that will recharge your inner battery. Later head via the shores of Lake Como back into Switzerland. You can choose between two routes:
MAY — drive the Julier Pass into the Swiss Engadine valley with a stroll through St. Moritz surrounded by lakes and pinewood forests.
JUN-OCT — drive the iconic San Bernadino Pass in the Swiss canton of Ticino.
Both alpine passes are linking the Italian and german-speaking regions of the Central Swiss Alps. Truly an enchanting driving experience with recognisable change of architecture, cuisine and culture between the South and the North. Shortly followed by what is by far Switzerland's most scenic stretch of highway taking you back to Zurich. The car pick up is arranged directly at your hotel and you can make plans for your evening.

VILLA DEL BALBIANELLO
& LOOP OF LAKE COMO
We highly recommend spending a second day and night at Lake Como. The beautiful setting and the hotel amenities with the pool and spa deserve your attention. Should you get bored easily we have planned a short loop over some scenic roads in the region — and a visit to the Villa del Balbianello.
The beautiful villa was once owned by an eccentric gentlemen who left it to the town with the condition to open it to the public for everyone to enjoy. Scenes of "Star Wars" and the James Bond movie "Casino Royal" were shot here.
Later take the car ferry to the other side of the lake. Taking your supercar over the lake is an adventure and a really fantastic photo opportunity. At Bellagio enjoy a short walk trough the picturesque lake-side town before you continue over panoramic roads and visit one of the famous gardens here at Lake Como.
For an even more authentic Lake Como experience you can rent one of the original RIVA Boats with a skipper for a few hours.
