Coach Hire & Bus Rental For Every Occassion
Switzerland’s second-most populous city with 780,000 people in the metropolitan area alone, Geneva is one of the world’s main centres of international diplomacy. It’s home to the European headquarters of the United Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross had its headquarters here, and the World Health Organisation also has a large presence in the city.
Stylish and cosmopolitan, Geneva is one of Europe’s most expensive cities. Strung out around the shores of Lake Geneva, Europe’s largest alpine lake, it attracts visitors of all nationalities to stay in its fancy hotels, eat at some of the best international restaurants, shop in luxury jewellery, watch and clothing shops, or indulge in some of the famous Swiss chocolate.
Take a flight to Geneva and you’ll arrive at Geneva Airport. While the cheapest way to get into the city is via the free public transport ticket, if you’re looking for hassle free airport transfers into Geneva, you may want to consider booking one of RentABus.com Geneva’s shuttle buses.
Once in the city, you’ll find that it’s fairly easy to get around on foot to see some of the city’s famous sights. First on the agenda should be Geneva’s most famous landmark, Jet d’Eau. At 140 metres high, it’s the world’s tallest water fountain.
A visit to Geneva Old Town is also a must. Wander around the maze of cobbled streets, take in the grandeur of Saint Peter’s Cathedral, see the house on Grande Rue where philosopher Rousseau was born, and explore the oldest house in Geneva, Maison Tavel, which was built in the 12th century by the Tavel family, and which now houses the museum of the history of Geneva.
Art and culture lovers will enjoy visiting some of Geneva’s thirty museums and art galleries that pay homage to the rich cultural history of the city. There’s the International Red Cross museum for starters, and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. You can also take a tour of the European Headquarters of the United Nations.
No visit to Geneva would be complete without taking a cruise on the lake. If you prefer to stay on dry land, a stroll along the promenade with a stop at one of the lakeside cafés is a great way to spend an afternoon.
On clear days, the Quai de Mont Blanc on the northern shore promenade offers views of Mont Blanc, while flowers, statues and outdoor art exhibitions are there to see all year round.
And, of course, there’s the shopping. Whether you head down to Market street to buy one of the excellent quality watches on sale, explore some of the antique shops in the Old Town, or admire the clothes and jewellery for sale in some of the more expensive shops, you’ll find plenty to catch your eye, even if you can’t actually afford to buy anything.
On Wednesdays and Saturdays, the Plainpalais Flea Market is well worth a visit to hunt down antiques, vintage clothing and records.
