Switzerland has stunning alpine scenery but it also has some very beautiful lakes, including the largest in western Europe- le Léman or Lac de Genève.  We visit Genève:  our arrival point -the international airport,  Gare Cornavin and the wonderful lakeside. A waterbus takes us on a harbour  tour then a cable car run up Mt. Salève,  At Lausanne we see: the cathedral and old town, then the lakeside At the tourist information office we learn how a new metro will make travel in the city easy. We take a paddle steamer to  Montreux for a visit to the iconic Chillon Castle. Along the way we view trains and boats and pay special attention to Cully where the vineyards almost touch the water. On Lac de Neuchâtel we visit another castle  Grandson and again watch trains and boats along the idyllic lakeside. We take a boat through Zihlkanal and onto the Bieler See for the best views between Neuchâtel and Biel where we take a funicular to view the city. There's lots of very practical advice throughout: eating, drinking, hotels, places to visit and how to get the best out of Switzerland's wonderful public transport. Narrated  RT 70 mins  ©FHP 2007
