Geneva is clean, Swiss living at its finest. The city is spotless with easy access to skiing, hiking, windsurfing and skateboarding too (there's a free public skatepark downtown). Spring is festival season in Geneva and with the thawing of the long cold winter, spirits are revived and the city comes alive making this the best time to visit.

I lived here for one year. It is a city you need to learn to appreciate as it can be quite dull sometimes. But, there is so much to do in Geneva and the surrounding area, you can't go wrong! Lake Geneva (Lac Leman) is beautiful and sparkling everyday with Jet D'eau rocketing up in the air. Take a boat taxi to get to and from different parts of the lake. The shore is lined with hotels, shops, cafes and banks ;) The museums are great at Place Nueve. Climb higher and check out old town, a cobblestone land full of lovely shops, cafes, winding roads and secret paths. Its a city really worth exploring! There are numerous parks to relax in and soak up the sun as well as Geneve plage to enjoy the water. GO!

This a great Swiss city, the second largest but still small enough to be very walkable. Right at the end of the lake it has this huge fountain which is very impressive. It has a number of museums including the International Red Cross. The city is rather expensive so it is sometimes better to stay outside the area and take public transportation to any sites you may want to see. The train and bus systems in Switzerland are fantastic - we got a Swiss pass to further reduce our transportation costs.

We spent nearly two weeks exploring this city. Geneva's architecture is reminiscent of the 1950s and 60s. Downtown is where you'll find all the clock makers (e.g., Tissot, Bulova) who advertise on TV and in print ads. The European headquarters of the UN is based here. On the outskirts of town is CERN, where the web (as in "www") was invented. Food is expensive. Everything's expensive for that matter. Nice place to visit albeit expensive.
