I will be traveling to the above mentioned locations in July. I have been to Italy and have friends there so I have an idea of where I am going (Venice, Florence, Rome, Naples/Amalfi) but no real plan yet. I will be in Istanbul for 3 days then about 4 in switzerland, then 2 weeks in Italy. I have been reading up on Istanbul and seems like a fun city. I have no clue where I am going in switzerland yet but would like to see some city life and probably mostly countryside and Alps. Anyone travel to these places and have some advice? Would really like to know what areas of Switzerland I should seek out. Would enjoy sime local adivce on a road less traveled to explore the culture and everyday Swiss life rather than just city life. Also considering some adventure such as bungee/sky diving.
