Explore the highlights of Chaplin, Montreux and Chillon castle on this day trip from Geneva. Learn about the life of artist Charlie Chaplin with a visit to Chaplin's World, before traveling to Château de Chillon for a guided tour into the opulent lakeside castle hailed as one of Switzerland’s most iconic attractions, and then top off the day wandering the charming streets of Montreux.

Discover wonderful views of Switzerland, the Alps mountains and Geneva lake. Drive through the Vaud countryside to Vevey, and discover Chaplin’s world: a site dedicated to Charlie Chaplin, the artist and man. Embark on an extraordinary adventure across time and through the magical world of cinema. Prepare to be moved by one of the most surprising artists of the 20th century through the sets of his greatest films at our Hollywood-style Studio.

In the afternoon, take the bus to the Castle of Chillon, the most visited castle of Switzerland, from the 11th century. Chateau de Chillon has a beautiful location on a small island in the far western end of Lake Geneva between Montreux and Villeneuve. This romantic castle was long of strategic importance in controlling trade in the Lake Geneva region. The dungeons inspired Lord Byron.

Your last stop will be in Montreux, a glamorous tourist resort. Feel the atmosphere of all the great artists who have visited this place such as Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, BB King, Ray Charles and many more… The emblem of the city is the statue of Freddy Mercury; he says that “If you want Peace of Soul, you should come to Montreux”. This artist, who lived several years in Montreux recorded his last album with the group Queen, "Made in Heaven", in the Mountain Studio, which is in the Montreux Casino. You will have the chance to visit Queen’s old recording studio. Wander through the streets full of fancy shops and landmarks of the famous jazz festival.
