Three places for a 10 day trip would mean that you would spend one-third of your time in transit. If it were me (and it isn't), I'd choose either Paris for 10 days with the option of s day trip or two OR Switzerland for 10 days.

Hi Divs - you said:

And then

Since Paris is a dream destination you must have a list of things you want to do and see there. 6 days is barely anything in Paris. I have been to Paris around a dozen times and still have seen and done everything I want to!

Do you have a guidebook for Paris? If not you should get one and look through it. Decide the places you want to visit. Some sights you might just want to walk by and some you might want to go inside. Some people just want to see the Eiffel Tower and some people feel they must go to the top, for example.

Where in Switzerland do you want to do?

I could spend months in Paris and not run out of things to do. Indeed, we were in Paris for 10 nights in May and couldn't tear ourselves away from the city long enough to take a day trip... next time, perhaps. I do have a trip report here, though my interests and yours may be quite different, as went spent lots of time in art museums.

Spend some time with a guidebook.
