Description

Discover the French-speaking Geneva City with Switzerland Tour. Also known as the "World’s Smallest Metropolis," Geneva City is situated on the banks of Lake Geneva, right at the foot of the Alps.

It’s cultural diversity and relaxed atmosphere mean that it is named the "Capital of Peace" by many visitors and holidaymakers.

Geneva is home to European headquarters of UNO and Red Cross, as well as more than 180 international organizations.

You will meet your friendly local guide at any centrally located spot and begin your journey into the history and cultural of the wonderous city around you, revealing the landmarks of Geneva during a 2-hour foot trip.

Your first stop will be at the English Park, where you will marvel at the lively Flower Clock over the beautiful gardens. Geneva is an exporter to conventional watchmaking and is home to the world's biggest clock made from numerous flowers, which make the watch look different shapes throughout the year.

You will proceed to see Geneva's centerpiece, the majestic Jet d'Eau, a massive fountain on Geneva Lake, and one of the tallest fountains in the world. Then you’ll cross the bridge Pont des Bergues to reach the unmissable Rousseau Island, located right in the midpoint of the Rhone River.

From here, you will be able to clearly see Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s statue, the world’s renowned philosopher and writer.

If you’d like to take a break from culture and enjoy some retail therapy, Geneva is a competitor in the shopping field throughout Europe too. Take a walk through the famous brands in Rhone Street - "the Shopping Paradise."

To continue your leisurely tour around the Old Town, you’ll stroll down to the gem of Geneva with its narrow, ancient streets, museums, picturesque squares, most elegant cafes and restaurants.

Finally, you will reach Saint Pierre’s Cathedral. This church dates back to the 11th century, so there’s a ton of history to take in there before proceeding to the City Hall. Here, there are many other famous sights to see before you reach the Reformation Wall, which is nestled at the alluring Bastions Park and represents the four leaders of the Reformation.

After a jam-packed day, you’ll be glad to have some rest at one of the homely restaurants in the Old Town to try the tasty Swiss dishes after the walking tour ends.
