Located in Switzerland, Geneva is famously home to hundreds of international organisations. But more than a centre for diplomacy, Geneva is a beautiful city sitting elegantly on Lake Geneva, surrounded by the glorious Swiss Alps. Brightsun Travel has a great range of exclusive holidays to Geneva so you can explore the city at its best this holiday. Here you could tour the Palais des Nation where the UN is based, including the grand central buildings and surrounding park land. Alternatively, visit the Musée d'Ethnographie de Genève and find out for yourself why it was awarded the European Museum of the Year in 2017. Then on to the Patek Philippe Museum, where you can explore the history of measuring time in the watch-making centre of the world. Jump on a boat on the Rhone and go on a scenic boat cruise. In summer, head to the Bains des Pâquis and take a dip in the Lake. Make sure you leave time to explore the city’s Old Town with an array of architecture to discover.
Now you’ve ticked off the classics, it’s time to explore the city’s food scene. Start at Café du Soleil, a local institution that offers fondue made from Gruyere cheese, and chocolate mousse for dessert. At night in the city, one street could tick all the boxes – Boulevard Georges-Favon. Here you’ll find some of the city’s best bars, clubs and restaurants. Away from the city centre, Geneva has amazing neighbourhoods to explore, like Carouge, with incredible Italian architecture and small boutiques lining the streets. At the weekend you could head to the outdoor farmer’s market, Plainpalais, and shop for bread, fruit and vegetables, meat and toiletries. And finally, for a day trip with a difference, you could travel across the border into France (just a 9 kilometre journey) and take the Téléphérique du Salève cable car to the summit of Mont Salève, where you will be rewarded with the best views possible of Geneva and its surrounding mountains and lakes.
