The largest lake of Europe is surrounded by mountains. In the summer you can swim in the lake. On a beautiful day a boattrip on the lake is a must.

Loved taking the lake cruise from Geneva to Ycoire and walking the shop line cobble stone streets! We had dinner at a quaint restaurant and sat on their outdoor patio...perfect for people watching. The food was just 'ok' but the atmosphere festive. Bought a lovely glass necklace intone of the shops. Many hand made jewelry pieces and fair prices!!

Thank iamcally

I visited lake Geneva several times while being in Geneva last October 2012. It was a nice and quite place to walk and look at the fountain. It was autumn and magnificent view of trees was there as the tree paper started to dry and fall down. What a romantic place was with nice weather, birds and colorful trees.

It is highly recommended to go to the lake on the market side as it has a nice garden, a clock made of flowers and cafe.

Lovely lake with views of the Alps and the Jet d Eau. The little boats run frequently to take you across the lake or you can easily walk across the bridges to the other side of the lake.

Wonderful city to visit. The lake is very picturesque with good ferry trips to go on. Swim and sunbathe when the weather is good, lovely promenade to walk along for miles. The old town has a great atmosphere, Good transport links with the railway, ferries, water taxis, trams and buses to explore in and outside Geneva at very reasonable prices.

Lovely restaurants, coffee shops, cake shops is abundance. Le Manor department store is fantastic. Fresh food, takeaway food, clothes, electrical, perfumery, chocolate, toys, household goods ect ect. at reasonable prices. The restaurant on the top floor is excellent.

You could easily send a week here and still have more to do.
