From the shores of Lake Leman, visit Geneva, the smallest metropolis on the planet.
As soon as you arrive, take a walk along the shore, and admire the 140 m water fountain on the lake. Then take in the ultimate temple in watchmaking : the Philippe Patek Museum. In its Art Deco building, the museum displays five centuries of watchmaking and showcases the oldest watch ever discovered.
For lunch, we recommend « Les Bains de Pâquis » on the right bank of the lake. The destination is popular with the locals who also enjoy it together with a dip in the lake when the weather permits. In wintertime, try the fondues prepared with the local « Crémant » wine both in a welcoming, fun setting or in a private changing room style romantic setting !
When you have finished your lunch set off to discover the old town and its iconic sites like the Saint Pierre Cathedral with its renowned tours, the « Parc des Bastions » or « Le Promenade de la Treille » and its 120-meter-long bench.
Then, with your photo souvenir taken in front of the Flower Clock, climb aboard the ferry to visit the far side of the lake and the United Nations district. This is where you’ll find the United Nations head office, one of the favorite tourist attractions of Geneva with its famous display of flags of all the nations and its renowned sculpture of the broken chair.
In the evening, we recommend a gastronomical cruise on an art deco boat « Savoie ». As you sail close to the highest summit of Europe while admiring Lake Leman in the moonlight, the Chef Philippe Chevrier and his team will prepare a wonderful experience !
Geneva will leave a lasting impression…
