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 a short trip to Roman Columns in Nyon (about 36 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Lake Geneva, engage your brain at CERN, examine the collection at International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, and pause for some photo ops at Reformation Wall (Mur de la Reformation).

To see reviews, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Geneva road trip planning site.

Nairobi, Kenya to Geneva is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Nairobi to Geneva due to the time zone difference. Prepare for cooler weather when traveling from Nairobi in March: high temperatures in Geneva hover around 13°C and lows are around 1°C. On the 13th (Fri), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to Montreux.
