We explored Lake Neuchâtel from the north, now let’s go to south of Lake Neuchatel map. The major cities here are Estavier and Yverdon. From the southern end of the lake, it’s a stone’s throw to Lake Geneva.
One part of Loire castles and the most interesting Blois region attractions on the map. Since the region has an excessive number of Loire castles (Cher castles, Indres castles…), you should study in advance which ones to visit. It is better to limit yourself to two castles per day, although some routes allow you to visit more. To attract visitors, some castles organize themed exhibitions. Therefore, it makes sense to choose a couple of the most famous castles to visit and add to them those whose thematic exhibitions are of interest to you.
Lake Maggiore justifies its name (“big”) – it is an infinitely long lake, a trip along which either by car or by ship seems endless long. The most beautiful parts of the lake are near Stresa (the Borromean Gulf) in the Italian part and the northern end of the lake around Ascona.
This topic is about the Moselle and Rhine Valley boat tours, welcome cards in the region and the rather complicated public transport tariff system around Frankfurt to Koblenz. The difficulty lies in the fact that the tourism region is divided into Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse, and they have very different attitudes towards public transport.
The Rhine gorges, or rather gorges of its sources Vorderrhein and Hinterrhein (“Anterior” and “Posterior” Rhine), are a must-see program. You can see the Viamala Gorge in an hour (or a day if you’d like to hike) and the Ruinaulta Gorge in at least one day (preferably two – from above and below).
In this topic, a map of the region with attractions and a detailed description of the gorges. The region is located in the canton of Graubünden.
Map of attractions around Frankfurt am Main and along the Rhine from Frankfurt up to Koblenz.
We continue the story of the Rhine castles. In this part, we will explore the central and most picturesque part of the Rhine valley from Kaub to Koblenz, where the Lorelei rock is located. Here the banks of the Rhine become higher, and each castle has its own romantic history.
In this topic, Ticino guest cards and public transport Ticino with maps of bus lines. Be sure to check the schedule in advance: buses in the gorges do not run very often, sometimes only a few times a day. In addition, some buses run only during the summer.
Ticino attractions map: in this part there are Locarno, three adjoining valleys, which are more interesting than the city itself, Bellinzona, the Leventina valley up to the passes.
Two posts combine Ticino sights on the maps. In the first there are lake Lugano attractions: the lake, the surrounding mountains and the Italian part between Lake Lugano and Lake Maggiore. Please note that it is possible to visit places around Locarno and Bellinzona from Lugano, but it is not as convenient and close as it seems on the map (dense population, traffic, narrow streets). Therefore, I would recommend two separate overnight stays.
