Geneva — 5 nights

Capital of Peace

Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Visiting Lake Geneva and Bains des Paquis will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Geneva: Chateau de Chillon (in Veytaux), Montreux (Alpine Garden La Rambertia & Freddie Mercury Statue) and Reserve Naturelle des Grangettes (in Villeneuve). And it doesn't end there: admire the local landmark of The Geneva Water Fountain, take in nature's colorful creations at Jardin Anglais, see the interesting displays at Patek Philippe Museum, and appreciate the history behind Reformation Wall.

Find out how to plan Geneva trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

Washington, USA to Geneva is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Washington to Geneva due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Washington in May, expect Geneva to be slightly colder, temps between 66°F and 47°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Wed) early enough to fly to Zurich.

Zurich — 13 nights

Big Small Town

The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Visiting Mt Pilatus and Lake Lucerne will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Seebad Mit Strand Am Vierwaldstattersee (in Kuessnacht am Rigi), Interlaken (Heimwehfluh, Parasailing & Paragliding, &more) and Lucerne (Rigi, Lucerne Station, &more). There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Zurich, take an in-depth tour of Landesmuseum, fly down the slopes at Grindelwald-First, and wander the streets of Old Town.

Plan my day in Zurich using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Traveling by flight from Geneva to Zurich takes 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a train. In May, plan for daily highs up to 65°F, and evening lows to 47°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 25th (Tue) to allow time for travel back home.
