48 Hours in Geneva: What To See and Do

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.

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!

Chill out and people watch – this is a serious cultural melting pot!
