The French-speaking city of Geneva is Switzerland’s second-largest and most international. Although it has plenty in the way of luxury watch shops and sleek global headquarters, including those of the World Trade Organization and World Health Organization, it also retains an authentic small city charm. Aside from Geneva’s emblematic fountain, the Jet d’Eau, which soars 140 metres above the lake, the main attractions here are strolling through the old town’s streets and dipping into its museums. The International Museum of the Reformation is of most interest to those following the Huguenots and Waldensian Trail, along with the Reformation Wall, where giant bas reliefs of Jean Calvin, Guillaume Farel, Théodore de Bèze and John Knox commemorate the Calvinist Reformation.
