Things to do in Geneva
Geneva is Switzerland’s second biggest city and a popular gateway to the Alps. Lying against the waters of Lake Geneva, Geneva is part of Romandie, in the French-speaking region of Switzerland.
The city itself is a beacon of Swiss culture, scenically nestled upon the shores of Lake Geneva. A tour of the city will reveal a rich cultural scene and a unique romantic atmosphere, with charming restaurants, picturesque views and luxury boutiques.
Exploring the region of Geneva in a rental car is an opportunity to see some of the most beautiful scenery in the foothills of the Alps, one of the most popular tourist regions in the whole of Europe. Geneva is only 40km from Annecy, a further 40km from Aix-Les-Bains and Chamberry, beyond which lies the Parc Naturel régional de Chartreuse and Grenoble. Geneva itself is beautifully positioned at the end of Lake Geneva, next to the Parc naturel régional du Haut-Jura.
