Geneva city guide

Geneva, the second largest Swiss city

Geneva is the second most important city of Switzerland. It is located alongside Lake Geneva, Europe’s largest lake, at the foot of the Jura Mountains. The city of Geneva is home to a number of headquarters to several international organisations such as the United Nations (UN) and the Red Cross. This makes Geneva one of the few global cities with an important financial centre. Geneva is also a popular tourist destination mainly for two reasons. Geneva is a dream city thanks to a unique setting and a magnificent view of Mont-Blanc, the highest peak in Europe. The countryside, the perfect place for outdoor activities, is only a few minutes away from the city. Geneva is the best starting point to visit rest of Switzerland thanks to an excellent public transport connection.


Wander in the Old Town to discover its winding little streets, flower-adorned fountains, hidden corners and picturesque squares. Continue to the Saint Pierre Cathedral and stop at the Maison Tavel, the museum of Old Geneva. Don’t miss the Place Neuve, where you will see a monument of the General Dufour on the saddle of his horse. Other landmarks not to be missed are the Grand Théâtre opera house, the Rath museum and the Conservatory of Music, which are all located near the Place Dufour. Take a stroll up to the esplanade of Cologny and enjoy the magnificent view of Geneva and the lakefront. Hop aboard a Mouette, a small yellow boat that will take you across the lake. You will get a close view of the famous Jet d’eau fountain, which reaches a height of 140 metres and is a symbol of Geneva!

If you get peckish, drop in one of numerous cafés and restaurants which are located in the Old Town.

If you are in Geneva, it is the best time to have a close look at what the world’s top brand watchmakers have to offer. In the city you will find retail shops which offer some famous brands like Tissot, Tag Heuer, Patek Phillipe, Frank Muller, Swatch, Omega and Piaget, just to name a few.

  • "slow"    
    it takes 2 hr to go from geneve to lyon is too slow using TGV.  
  • "Amazing trip"    
    this was my first time to use train between Europe countries and it was amazing and relaxed. thank you so much  
  • "Paris-Geneva"    
    Train was of high qaulity and comfort, the trip was direct and took only 3 hrs without stops. The train ticket cost only 56 Euros just two hours before our reservation, however it cost us 92 Euros while booking, and the train was not fully occupied. We booked the tickets on 11-Dec-2013, and the trip was on 04-Jan-2014  
  • "Fantastic rail experience"    
    I only paid 30 euro (promotion rate) to travel from Geneve CFF to Paris Gare Lyon. Enjoyed the scenic route. I prefered to have online printed ticket rather than received rail tickets by courier service. I have to pay extra for the shipping.  
  • "Italian train-Gibbs Family"    
    We were very pleased with the state of the train, clean comfortable seats and space for all our luggage. It was on time. We did the booking via the internet and managed to save a lot on travel agent fees. The e ticket was all that was necessary to produce to the conductor. Many thanks for a pleasant trip.  
  • "Nice ride on the train"    
    it was fast, on time and comfortable. Thanks  
  • "Good Service"    
    We enjoy very much, the train was on time and clean  
  • "Fairly comfortable"    
    With little signs in english on the train platform it was slightly hard to find my way around, but it was manageable. Trains were comfortable.  
  • "Comfortable trip"    
    The stations and train platforms were easy to find - journey was also very comfortable  
  • "Save money with second class"    
    We booked a first class ticket from Geneva to Paris (3 hours). The large seats in first class were comfortable and provided more leg room. However, the space for luggage is limited as in a second class cabin. That was a disappointment. In my opinion, when comparing costs, for a trip of this length, I would save some money and go with a second class ticket.  
  • "seat assignment"    
    The seats of my family members are put in two different coaches  
  • "Informative and easy to book"    
    Hi, You have great staffs that are very friendly and knowledgeable. Thanks again for the great service  
  • "Informative and easy to book"
