Maria, don't know if Geneva is "cast in stone". Before last fall's trip to Switzerland, I had read that Geneva wasn't all that interesting. We flew into Geneva and liked it. The two highlights for us were the old town on the hill and the park in the international section. However, after Geneva we visited Lausanne, Luzern, and Lauterbrunnen. If you can stay in either Lausanne, or particularly Luzern, they are much more interesting than Geneva. If you are flying out of Geneva, Lausanne is a short train ride from the north to the airport. In Geneva we stayed at the Kipling. Found it very nice and while not cheap, reasonable by Swiss standards.
