Geneva is a cosmopolitan city that offers a wealth of first-class dining, shopping and entertainment opportunities. But if you know where to look, the city also reveals a distinctive local flavor. Don’t miss the fascinating flea market that is patronized by many local people.
You should also take a stroll around the quaint old town, which includes a Gothic cathedral where John Calvin preached during the Reformation. The location of the city is also highly picturesque. Situated on the shores of Lake Geneva and not far from a host of alpine resorts, it makes an excellent base for outdoor sports of all kinds, including sailing, windsurfing, skiing, biking and hiking.
