Soak up the views – and the fondue
Geneva knows it’s gawp-worthy gorgeous. In the Swiss city famed for its neutrality, manmade beauty lives in harmony with natural splendour. Hop between museums and mountains. Duck in and out of markets and meadows. Step into a castle before stepping into lake shallows. Whether you want a gentle holiday filled with strolls and boat rides or a thrilling break packed with skiing, cycling and more, make sure to take in the views. There’s a reason the longest bench in the world can be found watching over the city’s scenery – Geneva’s dramatic vistas are worth dwelling over.
Visit in spring to mosey around flourishing gardens (there are more than 60 in the city) and walk along a promenade past blooming chestnut trees. Plan for a summer trip to bathe in beaming sun rays and mirror-like lake water. In autumn, visit a vineyard dripping in sweet grapes and see the city washed in warm yellows and vivid reds. Or pack your skis for a winter break and dash through dazzling snow on a nearby Alpine mountain before indulging in a bowl of hot, gooey fondue.
