Weather in Switzerland is always an issue. You will be going to Lucerne for the scenery. We’d like to think that over the course of the nearly three days you will be there, the weather will cooperate, so that you can enjoy taking one of the mountain journeys. But you must always go to Switzerland prepared for clouds that may seriously diminish the visibility and the fun and of getting outdoors on the lake or on the mountains.
We prefer doing this itinerary starting in Lucerne and finishing in Paris. But it can be reversed, especially if you have more time and want to go on past Lucerne to Italy at Lake Como or points farther south.
Beaune can be substituted for Dijon. That makes for a longer travel day when you are traveling from Lucerne.
We can easily recommend adding a third night in Burgundy and a second full-day excursion. There’s plenty to do in this area.
Your Burgundy tour can be set up as a private one, instead of with a small group. That costs substantially more, but it also puts you in control of both the pace and the emphasis.
