Weekend in Geneva

Due to some last minute changes, My wife and I may have to spend the next weekend in Geneva. Fly in on Friday night (Sep 21) and leave on Sunday afternoon (Sep 23).

Could anyone provide any tips as to where to stay, what to see, if we need a car there?

This would help a lot as this detour was very unexpected but this would want to have a blast regardless.

If you are just staying in the city, you don't need a car. Geneva has a great public transport system which is very reliable and safe.

Places to stay depends on budget, there are lots of hotels but it's an expensive city. Can only suggest you try and find something using the tripadvisor hotel reviews.

As it appears you only have Saturday, I'd suggest you stay in town. Have a stroll around the old town and maybe take a boat trip on the lake. You could take a return trip to Yvoire (lovely little village in France). Webpage of the boat company:


If you fancy a bit more adventure there are numerous day trips up into the Alps.

Let us know your preferences and I'm sure you'll get many suggestions. There really is loads to do around here.
