  • After testing out the incredibly efficient transport system, ditch your bags at your accommodation, collect your travel cards and jump right into your first activity! You’ll begin with a guided walking tour of the Old Town – a great way to introduce your group to this beautiful Swiss city. Be charmed by the winding cobbled streets, postcard-worthy buildings, and pretty squares that carry the scent of coffee in the air. It doesn’t get much better than this!
  • The morning will be a political one, as you take an ‘International & Panoramic’ trolley-bus tour past Geneva’s NGOs and international organisations. Next, you’ll stop off at the International Museum of the Red Cross and Red Crescent (MICR), where you’ll see inspiring exhibitions on Defending Human Rights and Restoring Family Links.
  • Relish in the afternoon sun (hopefully!) as you make your way down to Lake Geneva for a cruise. Sit back, enjoy the sounds of lapping water and take in the remarkable lakeside surroundings. Tell your students to look out for Mont Blanc in the distance – you should be able to see it on a clear day!
  • Start your third day in Geneva with a tour of the Palais des Nations (former headquarters of the League of Nations). Your students can explore the history of this grand building and the current activities of the United Nations – important stuff for any wannabe politicians!
  • In the afternoon, head to the Natural History Museum for a journey of discovery… and it really is a journey! The exhibits cover everything from regional fauna, mineralogy, mammals and insects to the history of Earth and human evolution. The museum also provides insight into future scientific challenges, new technologies and current issues. It’s easy to lose track of time in here!
  • Enjoy some fresh air with a stroll through one of the city’s parks, then reluctantly get back on the tram to the airport. We’ll miss you, Geneva!
