The beautiful Alpine country of Switzerland has been a favorite of travelers for hundreds of years. One of the most organized and advanced societies in the world you can still find charming towns, spectacular scenery and friendly people. The main cities of Zurich, Geneva and Lucerne are convenient jumping off points for exploring the smaller villages and mountain areas around the country. The Italian speaking canton of Tichino known as the "Swiss Riviera," has some of the most beautiful landscapes in Europe. While in Switzerland try fondue and of course chocolate.
