Visit Geneva - Best of Geneva

Geneva, that lovely city that lies at the foothills of the mighty Alps, is a picturesque place of Great touristic value. The City’s beautiful lake, its proximity to the mountains and the fact that it was the original seat of the United Nations means that the city is a very important hub on the world scale.

This demure and yet gorgeous place is a definite must visit for any person who loves the old cities of Europe. While Geneva has preserved its natural beauty well, the historic as well as modern buildings add to it. A walk down the older areas is an absolutely fascinating insight into the city’s history and culture.

It may seem tame but there is a lot of personality to Geneva that is waiting to be explored.  This French-speaking city in the midst of the Alps is a gorgeous place to visit almost any time of the year and hence a tourist destination to be reckoned with!
