Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fondation Pierre Gianadda and Corniche Lavaux Vineyards. Take a break from the city and head to Mont Saleve and Rochers-de-Naye. Explore Geneva's surroundings by going to Lausanne (Place de la Palud & Collection de l'Art Brut), Queen Studio Experience (in Montreux) and Chateau de Chillon (in Veytaux). It doesn't end there: examine the collection at Museum HR Giger and admire the local landmark of The Geneva Water Fountain.

Plan my Geneva trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Sydney, Australia to Geneva is an approximately 25-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of flight, tram, and train. Traveling from Sydney to Geneva, you'll gain 9 hours due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Sydney in October: high temperatures in Geneva hover around 19°C and lows are around 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Grindelwald.
