Geneva is a rich and beautiful city, and is one of the world's cities with the highest quality of life, so you'll find a ton of stuff to do in Geneva. It has a well-preserved old town, with trams and pedestrian streets, numerous parks, museums, and a broad cultural heritage. One of the first things to see in Geneva is the Jet d'Eau, the 140 meter-high water fountain located on the shore of Lake Lemán.

In the center you'll find more Geneva attractions like with the Cathedral St-Pierre, built in the 12th and 13th centuries.
