An Alpine hotel near St. Gotthard2 Nights | bed & breakfast

The hotel is situated near the historical DevilBridge on what for centuries was the main trading route across the Alps.

An old farmhouse in the Engadin2 Nights | bed & breakfast

The farmhouse from 1590 is situated in Bever, a village where, despite the proximity to St. Moritz, time seems to have come to a standstill. In 1877 house and barn were sold to the Salis family and transformed into a stately mansion. In the style of that period the exterior has been finished with wooden loggias and the interior was decorated with stucco. Each of the 18 rooms is an attraction, without the need to compromise on the comforts of the 21st century. In the cozy dining room regional specialties from the Engadin are on offer.

Day 9 to 11: Gardone Riviera

Attractions:

Trient
This small city at the base of the Dolomites was the focal point of world history for nearly two decades. Between 1545 and 1563, it was the site of the Roman Catholic Church's First Vatican Council, which is still known as the Council of Trent. The council represented an effort by the Catholic Church to find its bearings again for the coming centuries after the German Reformation and the collapse of the Church in Northern and Central Europe. The council also left its mark on the town, since the town underwent massive renovations as a result. The cathedral became the center of attention, even though had not been completed yet. Even today, this Romanesque church is still the city's most impressive sight. Leading to the cathedral square is the Via Belenzani, the most beautiful street in town. It is lined with splendid Palazzi and opulent facade paintings.  

Accommodation:
A 15th century manor house2 Nights | bed & breakfast

The villa is a renovated 15th century manor house set on the green hillside that slopes steeply down to Lake Garda. The sensational views will make your stay unforgettable. The well-appointed rooms contain a delicate blend of works of art and antique furniture. The stone house stands in a magnificent park where both body and mind can relax. The 80,000 square meter park contains lush vegetation, broken here and there by natural water falls and gently shaded paths. A succession of small clearings, fruit trees, ornamental shrubs, flowers and aromatic herb gardens conveys a sense of peace and well-being.
