Geneva Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

Geneva is very close to the French border, being located at the south-west end of Lake Léman, in an outstanding setting which has been carefully preserved. The city, built either side of the Rhône, is without dispute the largest city in French-speaking Switzerland. But it is more than this: it has also been an active commercial market for a long time due to its location, and has become the capital of diplomacy, and the seat of international organisations.
