Geneva sits perched like a beautiful crown on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland. Known as Lac Léman in French, it winds its way right through the heart of the city and is one of the biggest lakes in Europe.

Once you get to Geneva, it’s worth spending a memorable afternoon on a boat trip to take in all the sites from a new perspective on the water. There are glossy bank palaces along the lakeside, and picturesque restaurants serving traditional hot fondue and raclette - plus of course you can take a break from the crowds.

Here in Geneva everything points to style, elegance and luxury. With almost 200,000 inhabitants, this cosmopolitan and vibrant city is buzzing with people from all over the globe and has a supremely warm and welcoming atmosphere. Despite its outstanding restaurants, exclusive shops, scenic parks, bundles of culture and fascinating museums, you’ll actually find the area is quite small and is therefore very easy to do in just a few days. Once you’ve finished walking around the town, there are plenty of reasonably priced one-day excursions available too, to a variety of surrounding towns and points of interest.

Geneva really does have everything from quiet country parks to energetic nightlife to a wealth of antique shops in the Old Town. If you’re in the market for some high-end designer gear or a souvenir to take home, the range of boutique shops along the luxurious rue du Rhône are well worth a look too. And why not finish off with a thought-provoking visit to the United Nation’s European headquarters, situated in an elegant marble building surrounded by green parkland. A must-see whilst you’re in Geneva, the famous UN headquarters is an integral part of the fabric of the city and is definitely not one to miss. To get a closer look you can book a scheduled tour at a day and time to suit you.
