Kati Clinton Robson followed the Von Trapp family’s example and journeyed across the Alps in search of a new life in Zürich.
After a period of extensive European travel, Kati has spent the previous six years as the editor of Swiss News, a national news magazine for English speakers.
When she is not hiking, exploring remote valleys, or indulging in Swiss cheese, she can be found introducing her husband to the pantheon of classic Hollywood cinema.
Other writers are Katrin Gygax, Gail Mangold-Vine, Alexis Munier, Tim Neville, Heidi Hagemeier and Kerrin Rousset.
Fodor Travel Guides never disappoint, and this one, in particular, is no exception.
The writers and the editor did a superb job putting together this fantastic guide, with a full description of places, which fulfills all our demands for information about what entertainment and attractions in Switzerland, and what’s required to enjoy it.
I visited that region some years ago. Looking at this guide made me want to come back and revisit many places, as well as visit new ones.
The illustrated Fodor Switzerland guide is full of beautiful photos and maps, and they go deep into details on every attraction that you can find in that country, covering even Liechtenstein (as a bonus).
Among many remembrances I had from my trip, one most treasured was when I visited Geneva, and memories came back to, revived through photos and precise descriptions of places.
They propose a sample itinerary for a 10-day trip that covers the most important locations in that whole country (Zürich, Luzern, Zermatt, Geneva and Lauterbrunnen), besides giving you a high-level picture of the history of each place. Suggested attractions to visit have a reference price and hours of operation. Other itineraries proposed are a Swiss Gastronomy (9-days) and a Castles & Cathedrals (8-days) itineraries.
Finally, the “Where to Eat”, “Where to Stay” and “Nightlife” sections of the guide are a tremendous help when you are planning your trip.
This Fodor Guide is an outstanding result for a combined effort from seven different writers
The book is great those who are serious about planning their travels. If you are traveling for the first time, want to remember details of previous trips, or wish for a return to Switzerland, take a shot at this excellent publication.
Amazon.com was provided the book through their Vine Program. They did not request a positive review, and the opinions expressed here are my own.
