Lake Geneva and Jet d'Eau Views

The Water Fountain

Since 1891 it has graced the centre of Geneva's harbour, and is the must-see tourist attraction! Used initially for distributing the Rhône's propelling force to the city's craftspeople, the magnificent water jet is 140 meters high, with 500 liters of water passing through it per second at a speed of 200 km per hour!

Geneva’s Old Town

Carouge, Geneva’s Small Italy

Just a stone's throw from the city centre, Carouge will transport you to Southern Europe. Relax by strolling through shady terraces, numerous independent shops and artisanal workshops in Carouge's alleys and passageways. At night, experience the area's unique ambiance thanks to its many trendy restaurants and bars.

Wine Tasting and Vineyard Tour


Although not known for its wine, Geneva’s winegrowing region is easily the most picturesque in the world and the largest in Switzerland producing 13.5 million liters annually. Walk through beautiful vineyards and enjoy wine tastings and open cellar weekends, though some by appointment only.
