Book flights to Geneva

There’s lots to explore in one of Switzerland’s most vibrant cities. Overlooked by the Alps and a stone’s throw from the French border, pretty boulevards and sweeping views set the scene. Discover laid-back Carouge, with its ornate Italian architecture and hidden passageways, and indulge in decadent Swiss chocolate at one of the famed chocolatiers. If you like to shop, you’re in the right place. Dotted with high-end boutiques and Swiss watchmakers, you can while away an afternoon wandering along the glittering Rue du Rhône or rummaging for treasure at the arty Plainpalais flea market.

Fly to Geneva with British Airways and cycle along the glistening, tree-lined Arve River. Then, head out into the snow-capped Alps for some mountain air and a day of skiing in the winter or mountain biking in the summer. Take a refreshing dip at Lake Geneva’s city beach, Bains des Pâquis, and walk along the promenade for tranquil views of the Jura mountains. When it’s time to wind down, kick back in one of Geneva’s quirky bistros and enjoy some deliciously warming Swiss fondue. Book your holiday to Geneva now.
