When it comes to travel, let me be honest and tell you that I am not the best about planning itineraries ahead of time. In some ways, I think it is almost better to discover cities without a pre-set agenda anyway; the fewer preconceived notions the better.

Yet this strategy often leads me to be lost, wandering in circles in search of information on what to do and see.

Tourism and Conventions offices are usually a safe bet for great information and Geneva was no exception. Here’s four reasons why you should stop in their office at the start of a visit to Geneva.

Not all maps are created equal, and in some cities free maps can be hard to find. Geneva Tourism and Conventions not only has a wealth of free maps, their maps are also extraordinarily helpful.

3.    Free Local Advice

Local advice on what to see and do is always the best, and the friendly staff here are full of insider’s tips. My favorite hidden gems I learned about?

Favarger chocolate: Geneva’s oldest chocolatier, you simply must try some of the dark and milk chocolates from Favarger on a visit to Geneva, or whenever you find it. It’s absolutely the creamiest, most flavorful chocolate I have ever eaten.
