hkskyline's 2017 in Geneva

I first went to Geneva in 2005 and was met with grey and wet weather. Add the crazy costs of eating, and I went home with a bit of bad taste. My next trip to Switzerland focused on areas further east, but the weather did not co-operate once again. Luckily, my 2017 trip was far better with clear blue skies. More informed this time, I was able to find cheaper food options and much more affordable accommodations across the border in France.

To start your trip on a happy note, Geneva's airport offers free transport tickets to the city. Pick up yours at the arrivals hall.

Then head downstairs for the short train ride into the city centre - less than 10 minutes!

Basilique Notre Dame is just next to the train station.

Inspired by Gaudi's works, these residential buildings are given a colourful and playful name - the Smurfs.

To the south, short historic buildings line the straightly-lined streets. They eventually narrow and wind their way uphill to the historic centre.

The Cathedrale of Saint Pierre dates from the 12th century and sits on top of the hill where the historic centre stands. For a nominal fee, you can climb 157 steps up the tower for a lovely view of the city and the lake.
