Deep pockets are essential
Geneva, home of the United Nations (UN) and Lake Geneva which houses the largest fountain in the world. What can be better than sitting by the lake and enjoying a hot cup of English breakfast tea, only the price of the said cup of tea? 28 Euros for a cup of tea and a bottle of water, and therein lies the rub. Budget airlines get you to the city at a budget price, but the cost of the simplest items make a budget weekend a very expensive weekend. I would suggest that the sculpture outside the UN Building, describes prices in this city to a T (excuse the pun), Geneva is a beautiful city, but it will cost you an arm and a chair leg.
