You're completely done with Zürich? Well, when a man is tired of Zürich, he is ready for Rapperswil, as the great man said.

I would do the Pisa Tower, Brandenburger Tor, Big Ben, Eiffel Tower and that cathedral in Barcelona.
Then you've seen all the cliche destinations.

Only in Ticino Tom, you know that



@OP, well, Europe is a big and diverse place, without knowing what your preferences are exactly it's impossible to give recommendations. I wouldn't suggest time at the Algarve if you prefer hiking in the Alps....

My personal faves include South of France, Italian Riviera, but also cities, specifically London, Paris, Barcelona. Haven't travelled Europe as extensively as I would want (priority has been elsewhere in the last decade), but these are the ones that come to mind.

Castel Neuschwanstein, Zermatt, Stonehenge, Fontana di Trevi, Pont du Gard, Geirangerfjord, Amsterdam Red Light District, Alhambra, The Acropolis (do not miss the parts in London), and that Ferris wheel in Vienna.

Not only Ticino, plenty of other places in Europe too.

If the OP is visiting Europe and not just Switzerland the school holidays elsewhere in Europe are definitely something to consider.

The Giant's Causeway and the The Dark Hedges in Northern Ireland.

If you're a Game of Throne's fan, many locations have been used for filming. A lovely part of the world.
