A Geneva culinary package will let you try a wide variety of dishes, with an emphasis on French and Italian cuisine alongside traditional Swiss specialities such as fondue.
  • The Geneva Old Town is an absolute must-see for any holidaymaker, with its assortment of beautiful buildings steeped in history. If stunning architecture is your thing, the Quartier des Grottes is also noteworthy as its buildings have a distinct Gaudí-like charm. And anyone with a keen interest in history should be sure to visit the International Museum of the Reformation, which closely examines one of the most disruptive and formative periods of history right across Europe.

Parc des Eaux Vives offers fascinating views of the UN campus, while Bois de la Bâtie is perfectly suited to families thanks to a small zoo within its walls.
