“Lovely place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

The lake of Geneva is full of color and life in summer. You will see this beautiful spring, boats, artistic flags representing emblems of the city, little souvenir shops or kiosks, flowers, and a lovely breeze that accompanies the great view of some builings while you jog or walk alongside the lake.

“Very good views and clear water.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Take a ferry across Lake Geneva - amazing scenes and water so clear that I have never seen before. It is certainly kept well clean.

It is expensive but well worth the trip..

“Best thing to do in Geneva”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

as a traveller, Geneva is actually quite boring, however walking along the lake is probably one of the best thing you can do as the scenery is quite OK, not as good as Luzern but it can be quite relaxing.

“Great Evening Stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

This is a great spot to stroll along the lake and enjoy the views. It felt like someone had transported the fine walking streets of Paris to the banks of Lake Geneva. The sunset view from the lighthouse towards town is spectacular.
