Afternoon, go discover the museum Chaplin’s World (allow at least 2 hours) and followed by a stroll through the Lavaux vineyards and aperitif.
Day 2The next day, board the Montreux cog railway to reach the Rochers-de-Naye (2'042 m. altitude) and enjoy an exceptional view of the Alps and Lake Geneva. On the way back, treat yourself to a typical meal at the chalet-restaurant Le Coucou in the Haut-de-Caux.
In the afternoon, return to Montreux via Glion (Glion-Territet funicular) or via the old town on the heights. Take time to walk along the flowered quays and experience the Queen Studio. Once the visit is over, go to the Montreux landing stage for a tour of the Riviera by Belle-Epoque boat.
