Geneva

Capital of Peace

Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Visiting Corniche Lavaux Vineyards and Centre Geneve de Vol Libre – Paradelta will get you outdoors. Discover out-of-the-way places like Vieux-Carouge and Musee Ariana. When in Geneva, make a side trip to see Eglise de Saint-Sulpice in Saint Sulpice, approximately Saint Sulpice away. There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Notre Dame Basilica, take advantage of the amenities at Bains des Paquis, don't miss a visit to Chapel of the Maccabees, and examine the collection at Musee des Suisses Dans Le Monde.
