Things to do around Geneva
There is many things to do around Geneva. Besides the city of Geneva is a very relaxing place to stay for a while. Lake Geneva and its iconic plume of water will draw your eye on promenades and lush waterside parks, while Mont Salève is a slice of the Alps in the background. Geneva is still a beacon of diplomacy, where organisations like the United Nations and the Red Cross convene. Experts of a different kind come together to answer the great scientific questions of our time at CERN. And hundreds of years ago the course of European history was changed in Geneva during the Protestant Reformation.
You can do a lake tour by boat. Geneva Lake is wonderfull. Its possible to go until the other side of the lake and you can take the chance to visit the chateau de Chillon. The formidable walls of the 9th-century Château de Chillon rise directly from the waters of Lake Geneva in one of Europe’s most dramatic settings for a castle. Its literary fame as the basis for Byron’s The Prisoner of Chillon arises from a true story, and you can still see the ring in the wall where François de Bonivard was held.
A nice day trip would be to go at the top of Mont Saleve. On the French border south of Geneva, Mont Saleve is a limestone ridge that offers outstanding views of the lake and the Alps. Along with the views, you can enjoy hiking and rock climbing here, or simply take the six-minute cable car from Veyrier, at the French border, to an elevation of 1,143 meters.
At only 1 hour from Geneva, you will hallucinate in front of this huge moutain! The small mountain village of Chamonix, over the border in France, is a 90-minute drive through the spectacular Arve Valley, with the snow-capped French Alps rising ahead. Chamonix sits at the foot of Mont Blanc, Western Europe’s tallest peak at 4,800 meters altitude.
Many towns not far from Geneva are very cool to visit like Vevey, Gruyères, Montreux, Lausanne. I particularly recommend to visit Annecy and Yvoire, 2 towns that you can visit by foot.
From the first view of its medieval stone-paved lanes, well-preserved buildings, and flower-draped balconies, it’s easy to see why Les Plus Beaux Villages de France named Yvoire one of France’s most beautiful villages. For determined sightseers there is a museum of local history inside the 14th-century castle, Château d’Yvoire, and Le Jardin des Cinq Sens, a garden designed to appeal to all five senses. If you can, plan to travel at least one way by lake steamer, for the best views of Yvoire sitting along the lake with the Alps behind it.
