Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Let the collections at Patek Philippe Museum and House of Basketball capture your imagination. Get some cultural insight at Chateau de Chillon and The Olympic Museum Lausanne (Musee Olympique). You'll find plenty of places to visit near Geneva: Saumon Fume des Acacias (in Fleurier), Rolex Learning Center EPFL (in Lausanne) and Creux du Van (in Neuchatel). Spend the 22nd (Mon) exploring nature at Lavaux Vineyard Terraces. There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Chaplin's World, learn about winemaking at Corniche Lavaux Vineyards, get engrossed in the history at Maison Tavel, and look for all kinds of wild species at Pisciculture de la Gruyere.
