Switzerland

The mountains and lakes of Switzerland have long drawn travellers to this surprisingly diverse, multilingual nation with 26 administrative cantons. Swiss urban settlements have much to offer visitors. In addition to quality shopping, dining and cultural offerings, the heritage of several cities, established during the Middle Ages, leaves histories and landmarks worthy of exploration. These cities offer bases for trips into the Alps yet also have much of their own to warrant a visit.

One of the most spectacular views of the region is from nearby Montè Bre.
