Here, we will see the Annecy Castle overlooking this medieval town, the Basilica of the Visitation, the St. Claire Gate, the Island Palace, which is perhaps the most photographed in France for its beauty and grandeur, and other monuments. We will have some free time, during which we will be able to take a boat ride (extra) on the lake. In the afternoon, we will proceed to visit Chambéry, which was once the capital of Savoie. The centre of this city includes the Château which was the residence of the dukes of Savoie, the “Fontaine des Éléphants” and the 15th century cathedral. We will be able to do some personal sightseeing before returning to St. Vincent (time permitting).

Monday | We will start our holiday with a relaxing full-day optional excursion to discover Gran Paradiso National Park, Aosta. We will then proceed to discover Aosta. The history of the Aosta valley dates back to at least 3,000 BC. Since the 19th century, Aosta has been called “the Rome of the Alps” due to its numerous Roman and medieval sites that make up the history of Aosta.

Tuesday | Today’s optional full-day excursion will take us to visit Superga and Turin. Our first stop is in Superga, where we will visit the Basilica and the splendid views overlooking Turin, the heart of the Piedmont region.

We will later proceed to the city centre where we will see amongst others Via Roma, Piazza Castello, Palazzo Madama, the Giardino Reale and the Mole Antonelliana. We will visit the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist and the Shroud of Jesus Christ. We will then have some free time for shopping in Via Garibaldi.

Wednesday | Today’s full-day optional excursion, we take us to Switzerland starting with a guided tour of Chillon Castle (extra), which was built in 1536 and situated on the edge of Lake Geneva.

Our next stop is in Gruyères, where we will visit the lovely, hill town with its magnificent, medieval appearance.
