Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Patinoire des Vernets has been added to your itinerary. Get a sense of the local culture at Chateau de Chillon and The Olympic Museum Lausanne (Musee Olympique). Your inner history buff will appreciate Cathedrale de Lausanne and Vieille ville. Change things up with these side-trips from Geneva: Chaplin's World (in Corsier-sur-Vevey), Freddie Mercury Statue (in Montreux) and Collection de l'Art Brut (in Lausanne). There's still lots to do: get a new perspective on nature at Museum of Natural History (Museum d'Histoire naturelle) and ponder the design of The Geneva Water Fountain.

To see maps, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Geneva tour itinerary maker website.
