Top 5 things to see on a whistle-stop tour of Geneva

We stopped in Geneva for a couple of days on the way home from a friend’s wedding; it’s a great city to visit for a weekend break but it’s not a cheap option!

Hotel: we stayed at the Ibis next to the main train station which was a perfect location and reasonably priced.

Restaurants: we enjoyed some raclette at the famous Les Armures in the old town

1. Take a walk around the lake to admire the impressive Jet D’Eau…

….you can walk right up to it if you don’t mind getting wet! You can also take a boat trip around Lake Geneva to enjoy the mountain views.

 

2. Go to see the famous Flower Clock
