Situated on Lake Geneva and dazzling from the very first glimpse, the city of Geneva has it all—a cobblestoned Old Town, immaculate parks and promenades, charming sidewalk cafes, and true international flair. Its welcoming atmosphere makes it easy to immerse yourself…marvel at the fantastic Jet d'Eau, the world's tallest fountain. Check the time at the remarkable Flower Clock. Visit St. Peter's Cathedral, where Protestant Reformation leader John Calvin gave fiery sermons in the 16th century. Savor the French, German, and Italian influences over a hearty Swiss meal. From a tour of the U.N.'s Palace of Nations to a cable-car ride for breathtaking views of Mount Blanc, Geneva is sure to impress!
The very embodiment of a storybook Swiss town, Lucerne enjoys an enviable position between Lake Lucerne and the snowcapped Alps. It's a delightful collection of whimsical fountains, half-timbered houses, and covered bridges, and is home to the poignant Lion Monument and charming frescoed Chapel Bridge, the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe. Stunning panoramic views await from the medieval lookout towers that are part of the city's ancient fortified wall, or if you choose to ascend towering Mount Pilatus by cable car. In the evening, hearty traditional fare of veal, rösti potatoes, raclette, or cheese fondue is easy to find—the perfect ending of a perfect day in memorable Lucerne.
With its palm-trees, sunny piazzas, and Mediterranean style, subtropical Lugano feels more like Italy than Switzerland. Built on a site that's been inhabited since the Stone Age, modern Lugano hugs a picturesque bay on the northern side of sparkling Lake Lugano. Here you can shop among the arcades of historic Via Nassa...marvel at the breathtaking beauty as you cruise across the lake…relax with an espresso on 200-year-old Piazza Riforma…join in the flurry of activity at the vibrant Lugano market…stroll along the lakeside promenade, surrounded by fragrant camellia and magnolia blooms…or simply wrap yourself in dolce far niente, the sweetness of doing nothin
