Visit the old town and Nyon, this will be worth the experience. Chill by the lake side in summer.

The location is very central, in the heart of Europe, making it possible to travel to many beautiful locations. However, Geneva is consistently ranked as one of the most expensive cities in the world and so anyone moving should budget and plan carefully.

Geneva is a lovely place for those who have a steady income. The city exists in a micro-climate that affords its residents gorgeous weather for most of the year. It is in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. It is the second-most important seat of the United Nations.

Geneva is a quiet place, people keep to themselves. There is nice scenery at the lake side. You can enjoy a nice boat ride by the lake and look at ducks. Geneva is well-known for delicious fondue and chocolate. You don’t need a car to get around, you can use the bus. Everything is within walking distance.
