Cool Trip to the Swiss!

Okay, I am renting a convert Vantage and picking it up in Zurich. I have 9 days with the car and 2000km to kill before I have to return it back to Zurich...any suggestions on what I should do???

Do the Furka Pass and stop at the spot(s) where the movie "Goldfinger" featured the DB5! I've heard the drive is stunning.

I'm currently visiting Switzerland now and wish I had my vantage roadster with me. This has to be the most beautiful country in Europe. Everywhere around Lake Geneva is fantastic. There are many beautiful roads up to various peaks with amazing chalets. Visited Bern today. Bring your camera and stay off the highways and enjoy the delightful curved roads through all the villages.

OnyxVantage is an unknown quantity at this point
Sounds great, but check out this website for open roads due to snow

enjoy your road trip

btw, the Tremola Road would be awesome ...

Drive south to Lugano. Lake Lugano is the Swiss Riviera...and only a short drive over to Lake Como in Italy. The scenery is spectacular!

Post some pictures when you get back.
