When you go on a Geneva city break, you’ll be amazed that this mid-sized city is more beautiful than even the guidebooks make it look. Perfect for young families, couples and groups of singles, Geneva is the second largest city in Switzerland and is famed for its attractive setting and for being the home of several international organisations such as the Red Cross and the United Nations. The city also sits on Lake Geneva, a major tourist attraction and area of outstanding natural beauty.
There are a variety of ways to discover Geneva and the surrounding countryside. At your leisure you can tour the streets and quaint villages by bike, or join an organised cruise, walking tour or bus tour from your hotel. The environment of the Swiss Alps and the pretty villages and pastures that encircle the city make it one of the world’s most scenic and unique locations.
In the evening, many hotels offer organised entertainments as part of your all inclusive package, or you can choose to venture out into the city itself for a meal at one of the local eateries, or enjoy a drink in one of the relaxing bars and cafes.
For those who enjoy an active break, Geneva will not disappoint you. Join walking tours through tiny city passages and tucked away courtyards, or discover scenic villages, meadows and pastures and secluded mountain local vineyards. If you’re feeling really energetic, why not head up the Alps for a spot of skiing or climbing?
The one tourist attraction you won't want to miss on Geneva city breaks, is a glimpse of the famous Saint Peter's Cathedral. Other sights to add to your list include the impressive Palace of Nations, now home to the United Nations, and a relaxing drive along the shores of Lake Geneva itself.
