The Gotthard Panorama is an excursion that combines a 2 hr. 45 minute boat ride from Lucerne, Switzerland to Flüelen, where you take a 2 1/2 hr. train to Lugano, Switzerland. A first class ticket for the boat ride only costs 36 francs (which is half-price) if you have a Eurail pass.
The boat ride on Lake Lucerne is very scenic.
The small villages along the shoreline are so quaint.
The water is turquoise but appears green at certain angles and light.
Waiting in Flüelen for the train journey
Beautiful countryside and villages seen from the train.
I had two more trains to take before reaching my final destination…Varenna, Lake Como, Italy at 7:30pm.
p.s. If you’ve just began reading…I planned an 11 week, 5 European country, 21 accommodations solo trip from April – June of 2022. Photos were taken with my LG Velvet Android phone.
