Swiss San Francisco

Lausanne contains several distinct neighborhoods, each offering a different side of the French-speaking Swiss town.
On the 4th (Mon), steep yourself in history at Gruyeres Castle, step into the grandiose world of Chateau de Chillon, then appreciate the history behind Freddie Mercury Statue, and finally admire the striking features of Cathedrale de Lausanne. On the next day, look for gifts at Maison de l'Etivaz, then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Rochers-de-Naye, then pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Notre Dame, and finally see the interesting displays at The Olympic Museum Lausanne (Musee Olympique).

Geneva

— 8 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.
Get some cultural insight at The Olympic Museum Lausanne (Musee Olympique) and Gruyeres Castle. Step out of the city life by going to Lake Geneva and Bains des Paquis. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Geneva: Lausanne (Collection de l'Art Brut & Cathedrale de Lausanne), Verbier (Ski Service & Vinabagnes) and Martigny (Barryland - Musee Et Chiens Du St-Bernard & Fondation Pierre Gianadda). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, ponder the design of The Geneva Water Fountain, explore the historical opulence of Chateau de Chillon, and take in the awesome beauty at Mont Saleve.
