Geneva has long been the center of international affairs. John Calvin preached the reformation from the Gothic cathedral in Geneva’s quaint old town.
Today, this cosmopolitan city offers world-class entertainment, shopping and dining. Located on Lake Geneva, near the mountains, it also makes a great base for sailing, skiing, biking and hiking. The Jet d’Eau fountain rises 140 m into the air from Lake Geneva, reflecting the city’s pride in its international status. A visit to the UN building or the Red Cross Museum is a must. But Geneva also has a distinctive local flavor. Don’t miss the fascinating flea market visited by many locals.
