Geneva

Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Visiting Corniche Lavaux Vineyards and Bains des Paquis will get you outdoors. Discover out-of-the-way places like Vieux-Carouge and Chapel of the Maccabees. When in Geneva, make a side trip to see Eglise de Saint-Sulpice in Saint Sulpice, approximately Saint Sulpice away. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Musee Ariana, don't miss a visit to Palais des Nations, Genève, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and ponder the design of The Geneva Water Fountain.

To find reviews, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Geneva trip planner.

Tel Aviv, Israel to Geneva is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Israel Standard Time (IST) to Central European Standard Time (CET), which is usually a -1 hour difference.
