With a city as grand and iconic as Paris, one cannot be blamed to get over the itch of getting on to Eiffel tower soon after arrival. Climb it up or hit the lift and relax in Champ de Mars, or gardens of Palais de Chaillot, or take a riverside walk / cruise on Seine – that will be more than enough to whet your touristic senses right from the word go.
It’s difficult to classify Paris architecture in one form. With its Gothic, Baroque, neoclassical and endless diversity – it’s an impossible choice to select the first iconic monument for the experience and its best to start off with the one closest to you but spend the evening at Basilique du Sacre-cour to soak in the energy and all the views in one single frame. During the day try to visit Champs-Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, Nortre-Dame, Concorde, Opera, and Pantheon and you have just begun to explore the city.
Museum lovers would perhaps make a weeklong visit to Paris just to experience Louvre, but in half a day visit one can perhaps visit the Pyramids and main galleries at Louvre. A perfect complement to Louvre is Musee d’Orsay on other side of the river, and if you still have time touch past National Library, and Musee de l’Armee / Hotel des Invalides
Arrive in Switzerland and transfer to Lucerne. Depending on time of your arrival take the boat ride on Lake Lucerne, Visit charming Swiss villages on the shores of Lake Lucerne and get on the first Cogwheel railway of Europe to go up the Mt. Rigi.
Visit Mt. Titlis, the only public accessible glacier in the area. High up on the summit there is only one weather – winter. Enjoy the cable car and world’s first revolving Gondola ride, get down at intermediate stops to view frozen lakes, enjoy snow sports, cliff walks, ice fliers etc. Visit Lucerne old town in the evening – a medieval city with many historical monuments and beautiful houses with façade paintings.
Lausanne is a city in the French-speaking part of Switzerland set on a hillside facing Lake Geneva and the mountains, it offers a series of extensive panoramic views, beautiful old town with a cathedral that was built in 12th century. With so much to explore, your Swiss experience must include a visit to the Alpine villages and mountain passes, car free villages like Zermatt if time permits, Montreux-Vevey in Swiss Riviera, the Italian side and perhaps unique activities like flying across the alps in personal aircraft, or walking on the glacier.
Depending on your city of departure, soak in the last few glimpses with a tough choice between Lake Zurich or Lake Geneva. Perhaps the deciding factor is if one wants to view the largest clock face in Switzerland or the UN European Headquarters.
