You'll find Geneva Airport just three miles to the northwest of the city itself. If you choose to pick up a hire car by leaving via the French side of Geneva Airport, you'll be able to drive straight off into France, though we'd highly recommend stopping off in Geneva on your journey; the city has a great many fascinating sights and plenty of tourist attractions for the keen sightseer. There are more than 80 places in Geneva which count towards the country's officially-designated sites of cultural and historical significance including churches and cathedrals, archaeological sites of interest and the Palace of Nations – one of the places the UN calls home.
