3Switzerland is like Australia or Scotland. The cities are not bad, but the countryside is even better. I'd park myself personally in a quiet village in the Bernese Oberland or Valais regions. As for the weather, it depends on your altitude. The peaks could still be getting snow, but you could be in T shirts down in the valley.

Please follow these guidelines or, if that's too much work for you, consult a travel agent, who - unlike us - gets paid to put more effort into planning your trip than you do yourself.
