Geneva, “the capital of peace”

Nestled in the very heart of the continent, Geneva is one of the most beautiful European cities, with great social, sporting and cultural activities and a stunning lakeside setting. It’s also one of the best-connected cities, with an international airport and high-speed trains from all major European cities, making it ideal for a city break destination. Geneva also boasts Europe’s shortest journey time from airport to the city centre, at just six minutes, and both of the hotel options below will provide you with free public transport.
