From majestic Alpine panoramas and picturesque mountain villages to historic sites and ancient buildings from many different eras, this guide proves that Switzerland, situated in the heart of Europe, boasts countless grand attractions. Snow-capped peaks, the myth of the Matterhorn, gardens of palms, and glittering Ticinese lakes complement a broad range of traditional and cultural events, demonstrating the unique beauty of the Swiss Confederation. The elegant cities of Geneva and Zürich are explored, hugging the lakeside shores and conveying their very own cosmopolitan flair.
