Dotted with gardens and parks and set alongside Europe’s largest Alpine lake, Geneva is a compact city, comfortable with a rich history. A leading financial centre and a hub for international organisations such as the United Nations, the World Health Organization and the International Committee of the Red Cross, this Swiss city offers grand architectural façades, picturesque squares, intriguing narrow passageways for walking and unexpected courtyards with fountains. Any visit should include the International Museum of the Reformation in the magnificent Maison Mallet from the 18th century, as well as the neighbouring Saint Peter’s Cathedral, where John Calvin preached from 1536 to 1564. Just below the cathedral is an underground passage connecting the museum to an archaeological site with ancient Roman remains. The Patek Philippe Museum gives insight into Geneva’s watchmaking history. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum thoughtfully showcases a history of humanitarian efforts. Find upscale shopping in Rue du Rhone, and Geneva’s cultural centre at Place Neuve, with the Grand Theatre, Musée Rath and Conservatory of Music.
