ShoreTrips says...

United Nations Headquarters, physics, cathedrals, gardens...it would be difficult to find a city with more options than Geneva. Your guide will plan this tour around your interests.

You will be treated to your own private tour of Geneva, this true melting pot of the world. Historic and charming, yet sophisticated and cosmopolitan, Geneva holds a special appeal among European cities. Your private driver/guide will show you the best this city has to offer. Drive past the headquarters of the European United Nations, the World Trade Organization and the World Health Organization and other important humanitarian as well as financial institutions. Even for those not interested in physics will want to see CERN, the impressive world-famous research center for particle physics and home to the Large Hadron Collider.

A visit to Geneva would not be complete without stopping at St. Pierre Cathedral, the part Romaesque, part Gothic cathedral, best known for John Calvin's inspiring sermons in the 1560's. Construction of the cathedral began in the year 1160 and continued for 150 years, which accounts for the two distinct architectural styles.

Geneva lays claim to the world's tallest fountain, Jet d' Eau, stunningly displayed on the shores of Lake Geneva. With the fountain's main plume shooting 140 feet in the air, you won't be able to miss it (nor will you want to!). Visit the Conservatoire et Jardin Botaniques, the city's magnificent garden with over 12,000 different plant species from around the world. With more than 20% of Geneva's land area devoted to green space, you are sure to find a quiet, lovely spot to take a break and watch the world go by.

Whether you're strolling the streets of the Old Town, ducking into a chocolate shop to sample the delightful products or checking out the up-scale boutiques, your custom itinerary in Geneva will deliver just what you're looking for.
