Zurich — 11 nights

Big Small Town

The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.

(in Wolfwil), Lucerne (Luzerner Wochenmarkt, Chapel Bridge, &more) and Collegiale Saint-Germain (in Moutier). The adventure continues: glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Uetliberg Mountain, look for all kinds of wild species at Swiss Tectonic Arena Sardona, and wander the streets of UNESCO-Altstadt von Bern.

Geneva — 7 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.
