1. Re: Many questions for my July trip

Many questions, some quite general that cannot be simply answered.

Restaurants: up to 3 star Michelin in Corsier near Lausanne, CHF 380 pp - more reasonable in ranges from CHF 30 to 100. Currency: CHF for Switzerland (at best, but usually poor rate Euro will be accepted in shops). Activities: definitely no "Bateaux Mouches", but lake tours - see additional information. SIM card are sold at GSM service provider shops (Swisscom, Salt, Sunrise), some partners (Aldi, Migros, Coop), other suppliers such as Lycamobile, Swiss International airline. More or less "neutral" shop is mobilzone, and SIM cards are also sold at Post offices. Prices depend on what you plan to use; ID required for purchase. Landmarks: no Eifel tower, no Arc de Triomphe in Switzerland - known more for natural beauty, a few castles (such as Chillon near Montreux), churches and cathedrals. Rent a car: can, but not really needed as public transport is more efficient way for most trips. Best places: to many for compiling a list here. Transportation: for public transport information see www.sbb.ch/en - hotel guests in Vevey-Montreux area can get a free local transport pass. Places to visit outside Vevey: to many for a list here.

Have a look for instance at www.myswitzerland.com for places and events you might be interested the time you plan to be in Switzerland. Then websites of regional tourist offices: http://www.montreuxriviera.com/en - http://www.lavauxexpress.ch/en/ - http://www.lausanne-tourisme.ch/en - http://www.chateau-doex.ch/en/ - http://www.la-gruyere.ch/en/ - http://www.aigle-tourisme.ch/en/index.cfm .... even http://www.ville-geneve.ch/welcome-geneva/ - http://www.zermatt.ch/en

For information on Lake Geneva (better call it "Lac Léman") see http://www.cgn.ch/en - application tends to be slightly tricky. Overview for instance at cgn.ch/en-gb/…shiplist.aspx
