Switzerland 2023

Join Athena for an exciting trip to Switzerland Summer 2023.  Enjoy a half-board 4 days and 3 nights touring Switzerland, visiting Geneva and Bern.  Geneva is the location for our tour to CERN, a truly inspiring and potentially life-changing trip! 

Geneva itself is a gem of a city superbly strung around the sparkling shores of Europe’s largest Alpine lake. You will also take a cruise on lake Geneva and have some free time for yourself to explore the city of Geneva and relax on the waterfront. You will also get the chance to visit the old town of Bern, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stroll through the Old Town (Altstadt), and feel like you are walking on pages of a history book all along Spitalgasse Street and Barenplatz, as well as exploring the arcades. 

Join Athena and sign up for this trip in September!
