The Absolute Must-Sees Of Geneva

GenevaGeneva is located in the western part of Switzerland on the southwest side of Lake Geneva. The town is built on hills of different heights on either side of the Rhône. Situated between the Jura to the northwest and the Voirons and Mont Salève’s limestone ridges to the southeast, Geneva boasts a spectacular placement on the biggest of the Alpine lakes.

A center of European cultural life in which French savoir-vivre and Swiss solidity are combined, Geneva has an energetic atmosphere that makes it arguably the most beautiful town in Switzerland and the one that attracts the largest number of visitors every year. Its dynamic growth during the last few decades is provided by the great amount of new buildings in the city and surrounding area, where residential suburbs and satellite towns of significant importance have popped up. There are ten experiences that we believe will make Geneva one of the best vacation experiences in all of Europe.

Mont-Salève

Mont-Salève is a magnificent experience that no one should pass-by. Grab a bus to the French border and ride up with the cable car to experience an astonishing 360° view of the area. This is the best starting point for hiking, paragliding and other sports activities in the area

Geneva’s old town

Overlooked by St. Peter’s Cathedral, the heart of the Reformation movement, Geneva’s old town is Switzerland’s largest historical city. Steps lead to the top of its tower for an amazing view of the town. The backstreets are home to many of the city’s historical treasures.

Some London Travel Tips And Travel Tricks

LondonLondon is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world – it is home to the famous red double-decker busses, the Queen, and Big Ben. Considering how much there is to see, it might be too overwhelming with a single trip. That is why we have these tips and tr4icks to make your stay in London more enjoyable.

Pick and choose – there is too much to see!

One of the mistakes that first-time travelers to London tend to make is that they try to do and see everything. Remember that there is so much to do, so much to see in London – Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, St Paul’s Cathedral, the London Eye, and that is just a quick selection.

Keep in mind that unless you plan to vacation in London for a month, it is impossible to see everything. Make sure that you do your research beforehand, find out what is current in the city at that time, make a list of the things that you absolutely HAVE to see, and go from there. Considering that London is a massive city, it is important to prioritize.

Go outside the tourist zone

Most people have a relatively narrow sighted idea of what London actually is. Once you venture into what most people would consider unknown territory, you are getting into the truly spectacular sights of London. Once you begin to explore the neighborhoods, you can see just how much London has changed over the course of its history.
