Hello! I have two full days based in Lausanne and I was stuck planning what to do. I know at some point I wanted to do a cruise and I'm worried that my activities planned will take longer than I expect.
On Saturday Sept 17th I was going to do a trip to Geneva to visit the Carouge markets and Jet d'Eau. If I had time that day, I wanted to see the Lavaux vineyards, and go wine tasting. I saw somewhere that you can do that at visitor centers but I don't know exactly where that was. I'm not sure what towns to visit for that so I'd really appreciate some recommendations!
Then, on CNGs website I saw a boat departing Sun 18th from Lausanne at 9:10 for Montreux and was thinking I could walk along the promenade and maybe see Chillon. After that, I wanted to go to Gruyeres if it's worth visiting.
Is doing Geneva, Lavaux, Montreux, and Gruyeres possible in 2 days? If so, what would be the best way to do it?
I will have a first class Swiss Travel Pass, and from what I understand, it covers the cost of boat trips and I will be able to sit on the upper deck. Do I still need to get a ticket to get on the boat, or do I just walk on like I would other public transportation and show my pass if I get checked?
Please let me know your thoughts,
