Getting around on public transport is easy enough, but driving obviously gives you extra freedom to explore nooks and crannies that others zip past without stopping. However, the consciously green Swiss transport policy means that cars are slowly being given the squeeze, with tough city parking regulations and strict law enforcement. Nonetheless, Switzerland’s road network is comprehensive and well-planned, and although the mountainous terrain can make for some circuitous routes there is, of course, the compensation of impressively scenic – if sometimes hair-raising – mountain drives.
