Geneva, Switzerland's second-most populous city is better known for being one of the world's major centers of international diplomacy, having been the site of the first headquarters of the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Although the city has French as its official language, due to a huge international presence, there is also a large amount of English speakers mixed in with a crowd of Spanish, Russian, Portuguese and Arabic speakers, with the occasional German and Italian speakers thrown in.

Geneva has a highly efficient public transportation system. Most people get around the city by bus, tram, ‘mouette' (boat) as well as a suburban train service. Recent laws have also allowed for tourists staying in Geneva Hotels to be entitled to a free daily travel pass, which are to be provided by the hotels, to the local TPG.

Geneva is also a fairly bike-friendly town; save for the old town, Geneva's terrain is pretty flat and there is always a safe, fast route to where you're going. If you plan on going around Geneva by bike, you can obtain a copy of the VELO-LOVE plan de ville which is available in all of Geneva's bike shops.

If you plan to go sightseeing in Geneva, here are some recommended places:

The Jet d'Eau is one of Geneva's crowning symbols. It is a beautifully lit water fountain pumped 140m into the air and is best seen at night and from a distance-unless you prefer to get wet of course.

The Museum of the International Committee of the Red Cross provides detailed photographic as well as physical evidence of the committee's service to humanity during times of war and natural disasters. The museum is open daily, from 10AM to 5PM except on Wednesdays.
