Our Top 5 must-see sites in Geneva and its surroundings
Top # 1 – The Jet d'Eau of GenevaLocated on the Pier des Eaux Vives, the jet d’eau (water jet) is the symbol of the harbor. Its dimensions: 140 meters high and 500 liters of water per second at 200km/h.
We recommend a stop on a unique invention in the world, the mobile bridge of the jet of water. A real jewel of ingenuity: the pedestrian bridge has the particularity of turning into stairs the time of the passage of a boat.
To cross the Lake Geneva, the Mouettes genevoises taxis, leave every 10 minutes and allow you to move freely around the lake!
Top # 2 - Explore the Old CityWe recommend you a walk in the old town and its emblematic places such as St. Peter's Cathedral in Geneva and its unique panorama of the city. At the pleasure of charming alleys, your path will take you to the chapel of Macchabées, Calvin College or the Place du Bourg-de-Four.
The names of the streets will also deserve your attention: the street of Purgatory and the street of Enfer alongside the street of the Cross of Gold and the street of All Souls! And in the heart of the old town is St. Peter's Cathedral in Geneva, a superb visit.
