Our trip was a great success. The taxi transfers in Paris went without a hitch. The hotel in Zurich was superb. The Accademia in Verona was also v. good with very friendly staff and all very helpful. La Traviata was lovely – amazing acoustics and fabulous costumes. The seats were excellent. Hotel in Montreux had magnificent views over the lake to the mountains. We had a chance to walk some way round the lake the next morning with the weather sunny and bright. Homeward trip v good and no hitches.
