What's Ferney-Voltaire Like?
Although it is technically in the Ain department of eastern France, Ferney-Voltaire is actually a suburb of the Swiss city of Geneva, making it an unusual tourist destination. The town is most famous for being the long term home of the writer and thinker Voltaire, one of the leaders of the 18th century Enlightenment. You can visit his chateau in the center of town. The city of Geneva is right next door and has plenty of attractions of its own. See the Cathedral of St Pierre, the Jet d'Eau water sculpture, the rows of watchmaker's shops and the United Nations' European headquarters. Head out boating on Lake Geneva and visit fantastic museums like the Museum of the Red Cross, the International Museum of the Reformation or the Patek Philippe Museum. You can even attend open days at CERN - the world famous physics research facility. The ski resorts and hiking trails of the Alps are never far away from Ferney-Voltaire hotels either.
