Although often perceived as the Swiss capital, Geneva is Switzerland’s second-largest city. Headquarters of Europe’s United Nations and the Red Cross, it’s a global hub for businesses and banking. One of the crowning symbols of Geneva is the Jet d’Eau – a fountain of water pumped 140m into the air. The scenic Old Town is clustered on a hill around Cathedrale Saint-Pierre, with pretty pedestrian walks and independent boutiques. With plenty of museums, parks and world-famous research centre CERN to visit, you won’t be bored in Geneva.
