see larger map >>

August 23 to September 5, 2022

Travel by some of the most famous modes of European transportation through four countries and seven cities with Professor Scott Pearson, delighting in each region’s food, wine, art and architecture. 

Switzerland sojourn. Take in the postcard-perfect landscape of Montreux and dynamic Lausanne, both on the shores of sparkling Lake Geneva, then ride the Glacier Express through the Swiss Alps to the iconic resort town of St. Moritz. Lakes of luxury. Continue on to Lake Como, Italy, enjoying breathtaking vistas, and wander among the charming boutiques, winding alleys and lakeside restaurants of Bellagio. Capital appeal. Spend three nights each in London and Paris, exploring landmarks and off-the-beaten path treasures. Tastes of nations. Give your taste buds a trip with cheese and charcuterie in Paris, a wine tasting at the Lavaux vineyards in Switzerland and a cooking lesson in Italy.
