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 11th (Mon), ponder the design of The Geneva Water Fountain, then make a trip to The Flower Clock, and then contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Geneva. On the 12th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: kick back and relax at Bains des Paquis, then engage your brain at CERN, and then admire the landmark architecture of Cathedrale de St-Pierre.

For photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, read Geneva trip itinerary website.

Mumbai, India to Geneva is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4.5 hours traveling from Mumbai to Geneva. In May, Geneva is cooler than Mumbai - with highs of 22°C and lows of 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Tue) so you can drive to Interlaken.
