Geneve city tour: Learn all there is to learn about the city you have so often heard about on the news. Geneva is the backdrop for a great many of the world’s peace processes – and is it any wonder, being in the heart of the country that didn’t get involved in any of the two world wars? This tour of the city is the best way to get your bearings and see all the most famous landmarks in a city that often holds something as powerful and as frail as peace in its hands.
After joining your knowledgeable guide, who will make this tour so much more enjoyable thanks to his eloquent narratives of the stories behind every famous site, head off for your first destination: the International part of Geneva. This is the very centre of the world’s peace-making organizations and you will see all the magnificent buildings in which they operate.
Later on, explore the main touristic attractions of the city, of which there aren’t few and they all excel in beauty. See for instance the wonderful Flower Clock and the spectacular Fountain.
Complete the experience by adding a touch of Geneva’s history to the tour. Hop aboard the mini-train Tramway Tour and, later on, delve even deeper into the Old Town alongside your guide on a comprehensive walking tour of these ancient streets.
