Found across the French/Swiss border, Geneva is a city famous throughout the world for strong international ties, cutting-edge architecture and technology. A beautiful city at any time of the year and loaded with plenty of history and attractions, Geneva is a highly popular destination for travellers from around the world. Regardless of the weather, a day on the water is a must for anyone spending time in Geneva. Take in the sights from one of the many charter boats or tour operators. No trip to Geneva is complete without visiting a few of the famous institutions that have aided the city in achieving its peaceful reputation. Take a short drive north to the European headquarters of the UN. Be sure to make a booking, as security often requires visitors to register in advance.
Just across the street from the UN buildings is Red Cross Museum, which tells the story of this worldwide humanitarian organisation. While visiting the Old Town of Geneva, stop by Saint Peter's Cathedral and view the ancient archaeological site that lies beneath it.
To explore other parts of Switzerland, travel northeast around Lake Geneva to Lausanne, home to the International Olympic Committee, and a short ferry ride to Evian, where you can fill up your water bottle directly from the springs. Another 20 minutes east, you'll find the wine region of Lavaux. Cheese lovers should make a point to stop in Gruyères for a tour (and taste) at La Maison du Gruyère.
