UN area and Old Town


Renowned in the whole world as the capital of multilateral diplomacy Geneva has many other facets less known to tourists. Despite its small size, which allows the city to preserve its human side, many important activities like watchmaking, banking, science and gardening found here a favourable ground to develop.

Our visit will be divided into two parts : during the first one you will have a look at the international area where most international organizations are, including the Palace of the Nations.

You will go back to the lakeside and climb the hill to the Old Town. There you will see the main monuments, landmarks of a rich historical past. This will give you the opportunity to become acquainted with the city history and namely with the deep imprint left by Calvin on the mentality and the lifestyle of the inhabitants.

At the end you will visit the shopping area nearby and, if you like, have lunch or dinner in a restaurant of your choice or a cruise on the lake.
