Europe in 10 days??

Good Morning: We are travelling to Europe for our sons graduation from school. Have confirmed hotel reservations in Neuchatel Switzerland from June 11th to June 14th (graduation ceremony is on June 13th). We would like to see some other sights while there but don't know where to start. We only want to be gone for 10-11 days in total. My thoughts are start by arriving in Paris (2 days -- arrival and next day) then travel by high speed train to Lucerne then plan to arrive in Neuchatel for the 11th of June. Depart on the 14th for ??? Any suggestions, ideas would indeed be appreciated.
Best regards

perhaps you can fly to Switz. first,
and after the graduation go to Paris. Fly home from there.

Danon's suggestion is worthwhile. Depending on your origin in the US, you could connect to Switzerland in London, Frankfurt,Paris, Chicago, New York, Dulles, Atlanta, Houston or Philadelphia (there are probably more, but those come to mind) and then return from Paris non-stop.

If you use one of the alliances, you could do this on one ticket and incur very little extra expense.

Paris is a good idea. For other cities research Venice, Rome and possibly Florence. It depends on what your personal interest are.

Most people on the website are going to say that a major city (Paris)deserves more than a day and a half. Also jet lag makes your arrival day iffy.

Do you and goaliedad have any specific interests?

And Neuchâtel is just 20 minutes or so from Lausanne which is 3 and a half hours on TGV to Paris direct. Closer than Lucerne.

Switzerland and Paris is quite enough for one 10 day holiday

Even Superman can't 'do' Europe in ten days. You could spend
ten days in Switzerland and hardly get started. Talk with your son. What would he like to do?
