GENEVA

Geneva is Switzerland's second-most populous city and is one of the world's major centers of international diplomacy. Due to its location, Geneva serves as a transportation hub for most of French speaking Switzerland and for access to the Swiss Alps from points west. Geneva Airport is served by almost all European carriers as well as a few daily trans-Atlantic flights.

One of the crowning symbols of Geneva is the monumental Jet d'Eau, a fountain of water pumped 140m into the air. The spectacular plume was once an occasional pressure release for hydro-power generation on the Rhone River but people liked it so much that in 1891 the city created a permanent pumped fountain. The new Espace Saint Pierre pass includes entrance to all three sites of Cour Saint-Pierre, a noteworthy space of unique spiritual and cultural importance. The Cathedral and its towers, originally Catholic, both embody the high point of the Reformed tradition and explore the origins of Christianity with an extensive archaeological site and they are now complemented by the International Museum of the Reformation on the ground floor of the Maison Mallet. An underground passage, reopened when the Museum was created, connects the two buildings.

For some outwardly Swiss souvenirs you can certainly find them in Geneva, mainly along the main streets leading down to the lake from Gare Cornavin. There are also a couple of good spots on the other side of the lake near the end of the Mont Blanc bridge. La Rue du Marche, a 5 minute walk southwards from the train station, has just about everything. From the traditional to the modern, from souvenirs to household appliances to libraries to prescription glasses. This is one of Geneva's busiest streets that is kept clean and appealing.

Geneva has a huge number of restaurants for a city its size and the international community means there's more variety than you'll find in most Swiss cities. There are many budget spots located around the train station and in the nearby Paquis district.
