EXPLORE THE HISTORY AND CULTURE OF GENEVA

Known both as "The Smallest of Big Cities", or "The City of Peace", Geneva, is located in a prime position in the heart of Europe. The city’s natural landscape consisting of the Rhône River, Lake Geneva and the impressive Alps is unparalleled. The quayside of Lake Geneva, the parks, the old alleyways and smart boutiques are an invitation to a leisurely stroll.

Geneva was awarded “Europe’s Leading City Break Destination 2015” at the World Travel Awards (WTA), considered as the “Oscars” of Tourism. This is the second year in a row that Geneva has won this famous distinction that consolidates its status as an ideal destination for a weekend break.
