Geneva, Switzerland — 5 nights

Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
You'll get in some beach time at Plage de Port-Choiseul and Bains des Paquis. Escape the urban bustle at Lake Geneva and l'Arboretum du Vallon de l'Aubonne. Change things up with these side-trips from Geneva: Franck Ollivier Golf Pro (in Goumoens la Ville), Musee Romain Avenches (in Avenches) and Ambra Minerals (in Murten). And it doesn't end there: savor the flavors at Swiss Riviera Wine Tours, get great views at Cathedrale de Saint-Pierre, ponder the design of The Geneva Water Fountain, and do a tasting at Lavaux Vineyard Terraces.

Paris, France — 6 nights

A beautiful and romantic city fit for any itinerary, Paris brims with historic associations and remains vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.
Take a break from the city and head to Île de la Cité and Seine River. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Champs-Elysees and Shakespeare and Company Bookstore. Step out of Paris with an excursion to L'Orangerie in Versailles--about 38 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Le Marais, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, steep yourself in history at Sainte-Chapelle, and stroll around Luxembourg Gardens.
