Which areas to live in?

I know I can't be picky but...

What are the fun areas in Geneva? Where do 20-30 year olds go out at night? Just want to make sure I don't end up choosing a place in the middle of nowhere

Re: Which areas to live in?

There are no fun areas in Geneva. Sorry. It's a sci-en-tific fact.

It could be to do with them all being the basis for the Liliputian stories; they're all quite minute and get tired easily if it looks set to be approaching fun. I put a broken old chair in this picture to show the effect of such fun on one man: he strips off and lies down, believing he's going to die. Also, there are many holes in the ground, where Evian water leaks. That can be fun to watch, especially if one of the lil' Genevans fall in and get spurted up into the air. They don't find it fun, though. Those two girls in the picture were terrified.

Best of luck.

You should live where you find a place to live. Honestly, there isn't that much choice in Geneva.

Hi.don't listen to those wet weekends. Eaux vives, carouge,les paquis all with nightlife.
Also most likely places to find appartments as there is a greater turnover. Uncle Max must be a short man with a complex.
It was me that broke the chair trying to sit down for a rest after a big night out.
