Geneva is quite the city. In many ways, it is the center of the world and your arrival into Geneva International Airport is your first introduction to it. Grab your rental car directly from the airport and be off in a flash, whether you are in town on business, be it for a day or a week, or if you are looking to explore the ‘Peace Capital’ of the world.
Geneva is the headquarters for more international organizations than any other metropolis on the planet. The United Nations makes Geneva its home base, so a tour of the Palais des Nations is a true must for visitors. Also, check out the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum for a look at the 150 years of history surrounding these world-altering humanitarian organizations.
The Old Town is where you need to explore if you are looking for that ironically European architecture and charm. Spreading out from the Cathedrale Saint-Pierre, the Old Town neighborhood shops, cafes, and people watching opportunities will have you wandering for hours. Stroll the promenade for fantastic scenery of the Bastions Park before entering the urban green space itself. Bastions Park is a buzzing hub for students, families, and every type of Genevan who loves to take a break from it all. With walking paths and cafes along the way, a few hours spent relaxing in Bastions Park will have you refreshed to take on the rest of your day.
After discovering the city of Geneva, fill up your tank and head to the hills, you are in Switzerland after all! With multiple ski hills in both Switzerland and France within an easy drive of the city, a day trip to hit the slopes is a great way to unwind from the city buzz. In the summer, these same parks and peaks are wonderlands of hiking, paragliding, and mountain biking. If the hills are not to your taste, stay alpine with a trip to Lac de Joux and try your hand at ice skating, which is an easy 90-minute drive for the city.
