One of the must-visit places at night, this gate is also known as ‘the gate of Salento  There are a 16th-century botanical garden and a 15th-century St. Peter’s church located on either side of the gate. One can avail of a cab to Spalenvorstadt or choose to hire a cab all day in order to tour these places.

Basel’s Old Town-
Whether it is for the local cuisine, the hubbub of crowded streets or the architecture of this town, a day tour in Basel is incomplete without visiting Basel’s old town. This place is best explored on foot and is located on the west side of the river. It consists of cute little cafes and houses with terraces that are built in different shapes.

Rhine Falls-
An amazing day tour from Basel would be the Rhine Falls.
