Climate in Switzerland
Switzerland is small however it is a country with extremely varied reliefs: the temperatures and the climate conditions are very different from one region to the other.
On the “Plateau” (diagonal between the Leman Lake and the Constance Lake), there are not very different from the North Region of France (Paris). However, it is better to take a pullover as soon as you travel to the Alps or even in the Jura. The Tessin, only territory in South Alps, benefit of a Mediterranean climate.
