As soon as you arrive at Geneva airport, pick up your free train ticket into the city. Top tip – all trains from the airport go via Geneva city so just jump on the first one that comes along and get off at the next stop – only five minutes away.
The station is right in the middle of town, so no chance of getting lost.
Head straight for the water (you can’t miss it!) and stroll along the left bank taking in the fabulous view of the city.
Stand under a rainbow in the 130 metre Jet D’eau and get soaked!
Go watch shopping (only if you have serious cash)
Eat a tarte aux pommes in the Place De Bourg De Four in the Vielle Ville
Check the time on the city’s flower clock
Take a mouette (water taxi) to Eaux Vives (free if you are staying in a city hotel)
Indulge in some Lebanese cuisine (or French, Indian, Italian, Swiss: you name it, they’ve got it)
Check how your day is going on this pretty sundial
Wander out of the main streets and find some little gems like this planted up water fountain
Try a beer flight, locally brewed at Les Brasseurs
Wander around the art galleries, museums and antique shops in the old town.
Find a nice quiet spot for a coffee and to collect your thoughts. So many beautiful places to sit.
Take lots of cash – it’s more expensive than both Paris and New York for a coffee!
Walk through some of the lovely parks
Chill out and people watch – this is a serious cultural melting pot!
I loved it – I’m sure you will too!
