With easy access to beautiful mountains and lakes and to surrounding countries, Bern often appears on lists of "the most desirable places to live." But like almost every other city, Bern is now affected by urban crime, with warning signs about pick pockets posted around the central train station. The following links contain information and pictures of Bern.
Geneva with its close proximity to France is also well located for travel. This past Sunday we decided to take a public bus to the nearby French city of Annecy which we were told was a "must see." We greatly enjoyed the city and were charmed by its medieval streets and walls and by its incredible alpine views. Annecy is in the Haut Savoie region of France.
