Stylish Beauty, Culture, and the Alps -- Geneva


Geneva is style, class, elegance, and world-class architecture combined. A well-known city in Switzerland, Geneva boasts great appeal for travelers because it is a rarity with immense international organizations like the United Nations, the Red Cross, and the World Health Organization. Geneva has it all, five star hotels, restaurants that serve gourmet cuisines, and the enchantment of the Alps. Many different languages are spoken in Geneva; however, the city's official language is French. You will find a lot of people in this region that speak fluent English, but it is still good to have a handle on French.

While in Geneva, some of the most magnificent sites in the city are the Jet d'Eau, the Cathedrale St. Pierre, the Quartier des Grottes, the Place Neuve, and the Carouges. The Jet d'Eau is a spectacular symbol of Geneva, and the fountain is truly a sight to behold. It is even more enchanting at night when the fountain is lit up in a glistening blue. The Cathedrale St. Pierre is a brilliant architectural structure that is one of the best places to view the city and the lake. Quartier des Grottes is a shopping centre filled with unconventional, small buildings. The Place Neuve is an exceptional theatre in Geneva, and the Carouges are an Italian suburb of the city with a distinct flavor and culture.
