Geneva, Switzerland

The highlight of our trip to Geneva was a lake cruise to nearby Yvoire, France. Yvoire is a small medieval village on the southern shore of Lake Geneva. Yvoire is a nice place to stroll trough ancient streets, have some fresh lake fish, and drink French wine. A boat cruise there from Geneva only takes about hour and a half. Walking around Geneva, you can see the famous Jet d'Eau, Reformation Wall and the Flower Clock. Be prepared to spend $5 for a small bottle of water and at least $80 for a simple sit down meal. You will get to have some very tasty Gruyere Cheese fondue for that price. Geneva was incredibly expensive and not on our recommended list. Lake Geneva and the Alps are beautiful, but you can do better elsewhere. Here are a few pictures of some of the pretty sights around Geneva.
