Leave Milan on a high-speed train to Domodossola, the last Italian city before the Swiss border. Here begins your adventure on the Green Train of the Alps! Climb aboard and enjoy a spectacular route through the Swiss Alps. Cross Lake Thun by boat to get to the charming village of Interlaken. The train will take you through the Simplon Pass,one of the most beautiful crossings with Switzerland. After about 2 hours of breathtaking sceneries, you will arrive at Spiez,on the shores of Lake Thun. Here you will stop for lunch (excluded), before leaving for our crossing to Interlaken aboard a modern steamer. As you cross the lake, take a moment to take a few photos of Eiger, Munch and Jungfrau, three famous mountains whose recognizable shapes are mirrored in the blue water of the lake. Once you arrive at Interlaken, enjoy exploring the picturesque architecture or strolling along the shore admiring hang gliders flying over the snow-capped peaks. In addition to the beautiful views, don't forget to sample the best Swiss chocolate in one of the many chocolate shops that populate the city. In the late afternoon you will take the return train to Domodossola before returning to Milan on an air-conditioned bus.
