Visit the town of Montreux, famous for its Jazz Festival, before enjoying a lakeside drive to Evian les Bains on the southern slopes of Lake Genève. Departed Zurich at 9am to head to Bern.

In the old town, we shopped a bit and got our cheese fondue. I'm a huge fan of fondues - the Melting Pot has always been my favorite restaurant. Just like in France you will be in crepe heaven, in Switzerland you will be in fondue heaven. It's where they originated.
