Driving in Stunning Switzerland
Zurich is Switzerland’s largest city and is the first stop for most travellers. Located just a short drive from the Swiss Alps, Zurich has long been a popular destination for travellers and has gone through a cultural explosion in the last few years, with a new generation of nightlife & social centres such as restaurants and bars.
A lot of people may not know this but the capital of Switzerland is Bern, which is surprisingly a humble and laid back place compared to some of the other large cities. Medieval architecture along with wide open streets and squares make up much of the city. While not as appealing to tourists, the city still has its own charm and is definitely worthy of a visit.
Drive to Geneva which is another 'must see' destination and is the city that oozes cultural richness with a sprinkling of museums, cultural events and more great restaurants and nightspots, nestled amongst the Swiss and French Alps.
Switzerland is a beautiful country guaranteed to deliver an unforgettable experience. Experience the flexibility, freedom, and independence that come with a car hire in Switzerland and explore at your own pace without the fixed itineraries or keeping to a timetable.
