The famous Swiss ´Grand Tour´ road trip

This Alpine country features stunning mountain scenery and one itinerary in particular, called the ¨Grand Tour¨, exudes all the fun and thrills you could ever want from a road-trip in Europe. This popular 1,643-kilometre (1,021-.mile) circuit passes almost fifty of the country’s top tourist attractions, more than 20 lakes, five formidable Alpine passes, and more than a dozen UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the famous fortress of Bellinzona and the beautiful Benedictine Convent of St John at Müstair. There’s much more to motoring in  Switzerland than the Grand Tour though, with several other breathtaking routes from which to choose, such as a relaxing drive along the shores of Lake Geneva followed by a visit to some of the Lavaux vineyards, where the wine terraces date right back to the time of the Romans.
