Home to an important and old finance sector, Geneva has a mainly service-oriented economy. A number of multinational companies like DuPont and Cargill have their international headquarters in the Swiss city. Geneva nearly outranked its sister city Zurich as one of the costliest places to live. Cost of living: Rent of a luxury two-bedroom apartment, ($4,349.74), movie ticket ($18.48), pair of blue jeans ($141.26), cup of coffee ($6.52), fast food hamburger meal ($12.51), 1 liter of gasoline ($2.02), 1 liter of whole milk ($1.74), 1 liter of soda ($1.60).
