Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Change things up with these side-trips from Geneva: Chaplin's World (in Corsier-sur-Vevey) and Chateau de Chillon (in Veytaux). There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Geneva, admire the striking features of Cathedrale de St-Pierre, admire the local landmark of The Geneva Water Fountain, and see the interesting displays at Patek Philippe Museum.

For where to stay, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Geneva trip planner.
