Armchair Travel With a Tech Twist
No video or image can capture the hospitality of the Swiss people or the smell of the country’s forests on a summer morning; you’ve got to experience it all in person. That said, if you need more convincing and want a more in-depth look of what awaits along the route, you can take a virtual drive at Grand Tour
. From wineries to museums, churches to castles, you’ll find introductions to all of the country’s highlights, plotted out along an interactive map. The website for the virtual tour also helps you plan your trip—create a custom wish list, which you can then download in a PDF format—and provides contact information for every chocolate shop, cultural center, or other site you want to include on your itinerary.
