Geneva, hot or not?
What is Geneva
Geneva (French: Genève, German: Genf; ), Switzerland is one of the world's major centers of international diplomacy, having served as the site of the initial headquarters of the International Committee of the Red Cross before that. Although the United Nations is now headquartered in New York, the organization still retains a large presence in Geneva at the Palais des Nations and many of its sister/child organizations such as the World Health Organization and UNICEF have their world headquarters here. It will be one of the eight host cities in the 2008 European Football Championships.

Geneva is a cool town, it is situated by the lake Geneva with beautiful surroundings. Public transport is excellent, they've got all the shops and restaurants you need and the coffee's good. It's also just a couple of hours away from some of the best skiing in Europe. Works for me ;)

karolina from Finland wrote about Geneva Cointrin International Airport 4 years, 11 months ago
Be sure to leave enough time for security check, as the corridors go on and on forever before you actually get to the gate..of course depending on your destination. I seriously had to run for it a couple of times there, to catch my plane.
Nice quiet village above the famous spa resorts of Evian and Thonon, overlooking Lac Leman. Fabulous views, beautiful surroundings, yet within walking distance (more or less) from the jetset nightlife of the expensive lakeshore resorts. Affordable accomodation and eating.
