We were visiting many small towns and big cities in Switzerland. Driving made it so much easier to plan ahead and to visit multiple attractions and museums, some of which have limited opening hours. For example, some guided tours in watch museums and ateliers are located in remote towns and only offer early morning or afternoon tours.
