What trains from Sion to Venice

by egrgdjg

I am on the Euro rail website and I can't get the time of the trains from Sion to Venice. I know you have to break down your trip to get it, but I am struggling.

If anyone knows what routes or the break downs, please let me know!

I don't know who set ou tis story about "breaking down the trip" and then using the (Raileurope?) website - all the info you need is on the sites of the Swiss railways SBB (www.sbb.ch) or Italian rail, Trenitalia (www.trenitalia.it)

Travel Tips for Sion

Sion en lumière

by HORSCHECK

One of the highlights of our time in Sion was a visit of the sound and light show "Sion en lumière".

It is a free of charge event which in summer takes place every day at 22:15 h. A schedule for the rest of the year is available at the tourist information office.

At the starting time, people gather on the left side of the Town Hall (Hôtel de Ville), where blue light points guide a way along the illuminated buildings up to a place just below
both the Valère and Tourbillion Castle.

Here a mysterious story from the middle ages is told and accompanied by fantastic dynamic illuminations of the two castles. The whole event lasts about 45 minutes.

Official currency: Swiss Francs

by HORSCHECK

Although Switzerland is situated in the centre of Europe it is not a member of the European Union nor does it have the Euro as currency.

The official currency in Switzerland is the Swiss Franc (CHF). The smaller denomination is called Rappen (100 Rappen = 1 CHF).

As all countries around Switzerland use the Euro as official currency, many shops and restaurants catering to tourists will accept payment in Euro but probably not at the best rate.

You can get your Swiss Francs from many cash points or exchange offices all around the town. Credit cards are widely accepted.

Daytrip to St. Leonard and the underground lake

by HORSCHECK

The small town of St. Leonard is located about 7 km east of Sion. It has less than 2000 inhabitants and is famous for the largest undergound lake (Lac Souterrain) in Europe.

One grey morning we went from Sion to St. Leonard by train (single fare 4,40 CHF) and visited the underground lake which is well signposted from the train station. Admission costs 10 CHF.

Tours of the 300 m long lake are only possible by large rowing boats.

The guides speak various languages and tell you everything about the mysterious cavern and the lake. The tour lasts about 45 minutes.

When we left the underground lake the weather had improved and we decided to walk back to Sion along the so called "Bisse de Clavau". This is a path which follows the irrigation system for the vineyards and offers panoramic views of the Rhone valley.

I must admit that I enjoyed the hike much more than the visit of the underground lake, but all in all this was just a perfect programme for a relaxing daytrip.

Notre Dame-de-Valère Church

by yumyum

Inside this old church you will find various paintings and artefacts. You can pass through a door (which you need to close because of temperature regulation) and it takes you through the partition to the chapel from which you can take a peek to the original part of the church with its wall paintings.

You can take a tour if you want to go to the inside of that part.
