Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Appreciate the collections at Musee des Suisses Dans Le Monde and Le Chateau de Morges Et Ses Musees. Get some historical perspective at Eglise de Saint-Sulpice and Corniche Lavaux Vineyards.
