Geneva Travel Guide

Why? Health, wealth and happiness are the benefits to be accrued from a holiday in Geneva, the chic, graceful Swiss city where the International Red Cross was born. Travel to Geneva to 'see how the other half live', as luxury cars cruise the streets and magnificent yachts bob on the lakeside. With its pristine air, beautiful setting and sophisticated shopping, Geneva seems to not have a care in the world.

When? The best weather for a holiday in Geneva is experienced during the height of summer, July and August, but this is also the time when the city attracts thousands of tourists. Spring and autumn are less crowded and a pleasant time to travel to Geneva, although rain can be expected all year round. During late winter many travel to Geneva to access nearby ski resorts, and in December the city sees many tourists for the annual l'Escalade Festival.

Who for? Anyone who is enamoured with Swiss precision and efficiency, not to mention scenery, will enjoy a holiday in Geneva. It is also a popular destination for culture vultures with a full arts calendar and several museums and galleries.
