In this guide the Monocle Team delves into three Swiss cities and uncovers what makes them tick. They tour the spotless streets of Zürich, highlighting its distinguished commercial-gallery scene, glistening lake, inviting swimming spots and burgeoning set of top-notch restaurants and bars. Next, they head west to explore Geneva, with its luxury retailers, independent chocolatiers and curious collection of architecture. Finally, they finish with a jaunt around petite Basel and admire its robust offering of contemporary structures and world-class museums. The Monocle Travel Guide to Zürich, Geneva + Basel celebrates the richness of these three cities and dives beneath the surface to bring an unexpected mix of creativity, entrepreneurialism and design.
