Geneva

What you need to know before you go

    French-speaking Geneva is a multicultural city located on the southwestern bank of Lake Geneva. Head down to the quays to marvel at the city’s surroundings and admire the soaring plume of the iconic Jet d’Eau fountain, one of the city’s most famous landmarks. Stroll along the cobblestoned streets in Geneva’s Old Town until you reach the 12th-century St. Pierre Cathedral, where Protestant Reformation leader John Calvin’s wooden chair is on display. Still changing the way we see the world, Geneva is also home to nuclear research center CERN – book a tour in advance to see their ground-breaking exhibits.
