LAKE GENEVA SUMMER HOLIDAYS
GENEVA A TRULY UNIQUE PLACE TO VISIT
Geneva has everything it takes to ensure you have a magical experience, one that will leave you stars truck.
Boasting an ideal location in the heart of Europe, Geneva offers a smorgasbord of activities in a one-of-a-kind natural setting. With its breath-taking views, Geneva will amaze you time and time again!
A tour of Geneva is unique and fascinating as you’ll feel like you’ve travelled through several different countries, rather than one city. Things are all business in the Place des Nations, the seat of the United Nations Office in Geneva and the gateway to International Geneva. In the vibrant and diverse district of Pâquis you can sample world food and a little further out of town the bohemian neighbourhood of Carouge feels more like a slice of Italy than Switzerland.
The most traditionally scenic part of the city is Geneva’s Old Town, clustered on a hill around the “Cathédrale Saint-Pierre”. On the lake side, the most photographed attraction is the Jet d’Eau, an enormous water fountain on Lake Geneva spouting its froth 140 m into the air. The lakeside park area, around the famous “horologe fleurie” (flower clock), is the perfect place to stroll around.
Geneva museums and other cultural sights are in generous supply.
Home to CERN, Geneva is a great place for those with an interest in science. You can get up close and personal to the Large Hadron Collider.
Moreover Geneva is the perfect base to explore the Alps’ most popular destinations like Chamonix (with a less than 2 hours trip).

Even shopping lovers find here the perfect place! On the high-end street of Rue du Rhône and Rue du Marché, some of the biggest brand names in clothing, jewellery and watches compete with one another for your attention. Across the city there are plenty of stores and flea markets.
