Travelling in Europe
has never been easier…with CIT.

Switzerland


Switzerland may be neutral but its certainly not flavourless. The fusion of German, French and Italian people and ingredients has formed a proud national culture. The tidy, just so precision of the Swiss and their towns - Geneva, Zurich, Lucerne and Interlaken - is tempered by the lofty splendour of the alpine landscapes that surround them. 
Goethe described Switzerland as "a combination of the colossal and the well ordered" and he was right.

France

France is a country that seduces travellers with its romantic culture woven around café terraces, village-square markets, petit bistros and food and wine, all with a certain ‘joie devivre” that is hard to resist.
Experience the highlights of magnificent Paris but also discover the pleasures of France’s wide and varied regions by rail or self drive.
Drink Champagne in ancient cellars in Reims; visit Bordeaux wine country in Aquitane, make a pilgrimage to Lourdes in the Pyrenees or visit the hot south of Provence and Marseilles. And don’t forget to relax in the romantic Riveria towns of Nice and Cannes on the Cote d’Azur.

Learn that the food and culture of France is as much an art de vivre (art of living) as it is essential to its way of life.
