Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
On the 9th (Mon), get great views at Cathedrale de St-Pierre. On the 10th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: ponder the design of The Geneva Water Fountain, make a trip to The Flower Clock, and then contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Geneva.

Plan my trip to Geneva with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

London, UK to Geneva is an approximately 4.5- hour combination of train and flight. You can also do a combination of train, bus, and flight; or take a train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from London to Geneva. March in Geneva sees daily highs of 13°C and lows of 1°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Wed) so you can catch the train to Zermatt.
