Try the French (or German; Italian; Austrian) consulate and ask for a Schengen Visa.

I doubt you'll be able to travel much at all given the covid situation.

Re: Non EU expiring CDL visit Europe

Here is some official information I found concerning this question:

Quote:
5.3 Can I stay in Switzerland or in another Schengen member state after my Swiss residence permit has expired?
If you require a visa for Switzerland, you can apply for one to the embassy or consulate of the Schengen member state of your main destination. The application must be submitted no later than 15 days before your Swiss residence permit expires. If your main destination is Switzerland, you can contact the cantonal immigration office in order to extend your stay.

If you do not require a visa for Switzerland, you can stay in the country for a further 90 (continuous) days. When travelling to another Schengen member state, you should ask the competent authorities of that member state whether and under what conditions you are permitted to stay in that country.
From: https://www.sem.admin.ch/sem/en/home...reise/faq.html

This assumes of course that a CDL is "a Swiss residence permit", which is the case, I guess, even though it's a weird one.
