Important information

Swiss Oenotourism Price Winner 2019 : Innovation and Discovery

The offer can be booked either with or without lunch/dinner.

Description

The capital of the Valais is known for its castles and its well-preserved old town with its many terraces. With the help of a guide, discover monuments usually closed to the public (Wizards' Tower, Roman baths) while tasting local wines. You will then have a glimpse of Sion's 7,000 years of history. After this exciting and educational tour of the charming old town, you will have the opportunity to have a delicious meal in a restaurant in the centre of Sion.
