Between the Alps and the Jura mountains, Swiss Geneva celebrates its difference from neighbouring France. And the (conveniently named) Lake Geneva is definitely worth a visit too!

Best period to travel to Geneva
With its mild climate, Geneva is a great place to visit all year round! With lots of sun, Spring gives you a little flavour of what’s to come in summer, which starts in May. With gorgeous hot weather, you’ll want to make the most of summer by going for a swim in Lake Geneva. Although a little cooler in autumn, the picturesque array of autumnal colours will certainly show you another side of this beautiful city.
What Geneva has to offer?
An international crossroads
Does this not look like something you’d see on a postcard? Anyway, we digress.
French may be the official language of Switzerland, but, sandwiched between France, Italy, and Germany, the country’s unique position as an international crossroads makes the city a Tower of Babel.
Let’s get down to business
The architecture of the rich bank buildings along the lake can be attributed to the Germans in Geneva. You might want to spend the weekend here, attending one of the many international trade fairs.
Lots of Tourist Attractions
But this business hub has many surprises in store for its tourists. Between the cathedral, old town, parks and gardens, and museums there are lots of things to do and discover.
And of course, it wouldn’t be worth going to Switzerland without checking out the mountains.
Close to Geneva, the nearby town of Carouge that’s worth a visit. With its Mediterranean architecture, craftsmen’s stalls, and shady terraces, Carouge has lots to offer. And when the sun goes down, an evening in one of the town’s chic bars is a must!
