Save Place
2 Avenue de la Gare, 01220 Divonne-les-Bains, France
Visiting Geneva? Enjoy your stay in that beautiful city, but after your Saturday night fondue supper, when you wake up Sunday morning ready to enjoy a stroll and work off the cheese, remember that just a few miles away is a part of France rarely...

Place du Château 5, 1260 Nyon, Switzerland
Nyon is a medieval city just 20 kms from Geneva on the lake towards Lausanne. Its castle surrounds the city and provides an unique viewpoint of the lake and the Alps.

Quai Wilson 47, 1211 Genève, Switzerland
One of my favorite's bars is however Café Arts on the opposite side of Old Town. This is mostly local's knowledge, however it is very hype and trendy.
Save Place
Rue Etienne-Dumont 3, 1204 Genève, Switzerland
This 14th Century Gothic Chapel is the highlight of Sacred Geneva, but you'd hardly know it was even there unless someone told you to look for it. St. Peter's Cathedral has been a cathedral in one iteration or another since the 4th century and...
Save Place
Rue Rodolphe-Toepffer 9, 1206 Genève, Switzerland
Most tourists never see this beautiful Russian Orthodox Church, just beyond Geneva's Old Town. It was built in the late XIXth century and rumors say that Dostoievsky, during his stay here, was a frequent visitor.

Another favorite spot in Geneva's Old Town is the Demi-Lune for a drink. Anglos tend to like it and meet there informally.

Place du Bourg-de-Four 20, 1204 Genève, Switzerland
If you are in Geneva's Old Town, be sure to stop for a coffee or drink at la Clémence, one of the oldest and most respected cafés of Geneva. On a warm day, the locals converge at its terrasse.

Place du Bourg-de-Four 24, 1204 Genève, Switzerland
If you visit St-Pierre's cathedral, be sure to take the stairs of one of the towers. You will not regret the efforts of climbing the stairs, as on a clear and sunny day you can have a 360 view of Lake Geneva (up to Lausanne), the Alps, the Rhone...
Save Place
Rue du Perron 5, 1204 Genève, Switzerland
My favorite discovery in Geneva. Century old microscopes, trinkets, tools. Seriously good wander shopping.
Save Place
Rue du Puits-Saint-Pierre 1, 1204 Genève, Switzerland
This is my favorite antiquities shop in old town Geneva, but it is by no means the only one you'll find. In this one, you'll find, as the sign says, antiquities that have to do with science. Many are of the sea-faring variety, but others have to...
Save Place
Place de Neuve, 1204 Genève, Switzerland
From Place Neuve, have a look at the Grand Théatre where the opera is located, together with the Conservatoire de Musique and the Musée Rath which hosts local exhibitions. Up the remaining fortified walls you will notice old houses which belong to...
