Consistently ranked among the five most expensive cities in the world, Geneva is both a leading financial center as well as a great city to visit on business or on vacation. Often mistaken for the capital of Switzerland it has earned the soubriquet ‘Capital of Peace’ thanks to its location as the European headquarters of the UN, its many agencies, the International Red Cross and the World Health Organization.
A humanitarian hub it may well be, but Geneva’s gold card is its unique blend of rich history, spectacular natural panoramas, and an affinity for luxury lifestyles. And of course, its superb location near the borders of Germany and France, nestled between the Alps, Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva. Its Old Town is a veritable medieval treasure trove; the mix of Gothic and Romanesque architecture clearly evident at St. Peter’s Cathedral, while the many narrow streets and alleys house museums, cafes and quirky shops.
Terminal 3 at Geneva International Airport accommodates private jets and is only 15 minutes from a fine selection of five-star hotels that line the shores of Lake Geneva. Visitors can also enjoy many Michelin-starred restaurants in the vicinity.
