College daughter traveling this spring

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! My DD is traveling to Switzerland this spring to do a two week study abroad with her college. They are all to meet there. Teacher suggested they fly over a week ahead and travel a little before check in.

She would like to go to Prague. I found she can fly to Prague on United and direct home from Zurich. She will most likely fly out of Washington DC area for better fares and to travel with some girls.
The hard part is Prague to Zurich.Does anyone know of some cheaper airlines that service these two? Also, what is a good safe area/hotel in Prague. This is an unfamiliar city for me.
And last but not least, some suggestes cities for pre trip or mid trip for a few days that would be easy to get to from Riva San Vitale Switzerland. (The school is down by the lakes region of Switzerland). She has traveled through Zurich last summer with us and took the trains down to Lugano. So, this is at least somewhat familiar. We traveled down to italy last summer.

I am trying to help her research some ideas that are reasonably priced and safe for two or three young ladies to travel. They are all about 21, but are probably not all that worldly. My dd has traveled a little but always with us.
So, thanks for any info or recommendations !
