  • Chillon Castle self guided visit & Wine Tasting at Chexbres:The Swiss Riviera has much to offer but a visit to this region would not be complete without visiting its famous landmark ‘Chillon Castle’ and to taste some of the delightful wine grown in this area. The Swiss famously do not export their wines as their production just about covers the needs of the local population. We recommend visiting Chillon Castle in the morning, taking the lake steamer to Vevey and continuing by train to Chexbres in the late afternoon for the wine tasting.
