We did a lazy-bone day on the lake, buying a one-day card and boarding the 10.50h boat to Geneva - and back. For some 7 hours we did nothing but look the places and the seashore pass by... A relaxing pleasure.

We took a round trip from Lausanne to Chillon and back, for 100 CHF / 2 persons, around 3 hours altogether, 3-6 PM. Several stopovers, Montreux, Vevey etc. The weather was perfect, and the experience is unforgettable. Strongly recommended.
