Geneva 'ideal for weekend breaks'

Geneva 'ideal for weekend breaks'
22 Aug 2011

Travellers planning a weekend break on the continent have been encouraged to consider visiting Geneva.

Julie Melet of Switzerland Tourism described the destination as 'perfect' for a short getaway.

She pointed out that it is easily accessible for British travellers, with a wide range of flights from UK airports and a train transfer of just seven minutes required to reach the city.

Ms Melet also stressed that, while Geneva is a quintessentially Swiss city, visitors should not expect 'chalets and an alpine setting'.

'Geneva is a modern city with authentic charm and a great proximity to nature,' the spokeswoman added.

'The location is perfect on the shores of Lake Geneva with the Alps as a backdrop. Geneva has a special atmosphere thanks to its international role.'

Sights and attractions for travellers to look out for include the famous Jet d'Eau on the lake, St Pierre cathedral and museums exploring everything from the Reformation to modern art.
