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). There's still lots to do: get great views at Cathedrale de St-Pierre, engage your brain at CERN, ponder the world of politics at Palais des Nations, Genève, and examine the collection at Patek Philippe Museum.

For more things to do, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Geneva trip website.

New York City, USA to Geneva is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from New York City to Geneva due to the time zone difference. In February, plan for daily highs up to 7°C, and evening lows to 0°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Mon) early enough to drive to Lausanne.
