Geneva — 6 nights

Capital of Peace

Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Visiting Lake Geneva and Franck Ollivier Golf Pro will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to La Maison de la Riviere (in Tolochenaz), Lausanne (Le Port d'Ouchy, The Olympic Museum Lausanne (Musee Olympique), &more) and Lindt Chocolate Shop Aubonne (in Aubonne). There's still lots to do: ponder the design of The Geneva Water Fountain, pause for some photo ops at Reformation Wall, tour the pleasant surroundings at Les Crosets, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedrale de Saint-Pierre.
