We ended up getting to the hotel at about 8 PM, so didn't have time to go back into town for dinner and to see the city. It was a bit of a bugger considering we won't have time tomorrow as we are at CERN all day. Instead, we went next door to a nice Italian place. I had an awesome risotto, and many of the others got other fantastic looking pasta dishes and pizzas.
Now that I know how to read the boat schedule, getting back home was a snap! The boats themselves are very comfortable, the weather, we think, has been amazing and we've reveled in sitting on the boats outside watching the flag wave in the background. The waters are dark deep blue, and the steam ships happily engage any boat enthusiast!

Once again she had us entranced with her European adventure stories, and had me making a mental note about all the Italian villages that we absolutely needed to visit.

Even more frequently seen were roadside crucifixes of varying size and ornateness, each tanding as testament to the strong Catholic tradition that ...
... sail on what we thought would be a 3 hour tour, across the lake to other towns and points of interest including a castle or 2....but some how that didn't happen..we crossed the lake and did get a great sense of its size and importance to the whole area but no castles..
Switzerland has a wine industry and the steep hills are covered with vines
Tonight it really rained, the first we have seen for 3 weeks but it didn't stop us getting out for a meal.
We are only here over ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Elite Lausanne
The hotel was very pleasant and staff friendly. The room was warm and comfortable witha good view of the Lake Leman. Breakfast was continental with plenty on offer
It would have been useful to have had kettle and cups in the room enabling us to make warm drinks.
