Project Description

Geneva

Multicultural City sits right on the southern tip of Lake Geneva, below the French Alps. The Jet d’Eau fountain and Floral Clock huddle on the left bank, while just to the south the Old Town’s cobbled streets twist up to hilltop St Peter’s Cathedral. On the right bank, lakefront gardens lead to the UN headquarters. An astonishing 40% of the city’s population are foreigners, as Geneva is the world’s diplomatic and banking centre.

There’s rarely a dull moment in Geneva. Strolling by Lake Geneva, one can enjoy a relaxed elegant pristine metropolis. Be sure to see Jet d’Eau on Lake Geneva with an astonishing height of 140 meters, St Pierre Cathedral and the impressive Palais des Nations. Taste some of the best chocolate in the world by world-class chocolate boutiques all around the city, or a superb cheese fondue made with local artisan cheeses.
