Share the Passion:

"Switzerland is beyond stunning! From the scenery to the food and people, you can't go wrong here. Train travel is a breeze and public transport options are plentiful, so don't be afraid to stay outside of the city centers. One of my favorite places is Lugano, where you can experience a perfect blend of Swiss and Italian culture, food, and shopping."
