Geneva

Geneva ©
Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Archeological Site at St. Pierre's Cathedral and Notre Dame Basilica. Popular historic sites such as Chateau de Chillon and Abbaye de Saint-Maurice d'Agaune are in your itinerary. Explore Geneva's surroundings by going to Pont de la Batiaz (in Martigny), Sion (Valere Basilica & Chateau de Tourbillon) and Freddie Mercury Statue (in Montreux). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Maison Tavel, take in the spiritual surroundings of Eglise Russe, examine the collection at Musee Ariana, and don't miss a visit to Chapel of the Maccabees.

For ratings and other tourist information, refer to the Geneva travel planner.
