A delight

These yellow boats function as transport between the different shores of Lake Leman in Geneva and are a delight for tourists as well as locals. Tourists enjoy a pleasant lake crossing, and locals use them as a convenient and cheap method of transportation to get to work. The same bus ticket (3.50CHF) can be used in any of the 4 lines: M1: Pâquis - Mollard - Pâquis. M2: Pâquis - quai Gustave Ador - Pâquis. M3: Pâquis - Genève-plage - Pâquis. M4: Genève- plage - Perle du Lac - Genève-plage. They run every 10 minutes from 7.30 am - 18:00 pm (approximately and depending on the line) and I advise going on a sunny day, as the lake is calmer. It offers a nice view of both sides of the lake and, of course, the Jet d'Eau, apart from that it saves time as there's no traffic on the lake.

Undeniable that the lake is spectacular

Beautiful Lake Leman is the most striking feature of Geneva with its Jet d'Eau, a water jet, in the middle. Well, the water jet may not be that special, but it is undeniable that the lake is spectacular. A very interesting way to cross it is in one of the cruise ships. The views of the lake, the city and the Alps are very beautiful, and if it is a clear sunny day, the trip is really worth it. Indeed, the Geneva Tourist Office sells packages for hotel + transport card + lake cruise that are really well priced.

The views are just stunning

General Navigation Company (CGN) makes several trips a day on Lake Léman. Depending on the time you can take an 8 hour trip (to Montreaux) or shorter trips of about half an hour - in any case, it's worth it. You can purchase tickets from any of the ticketing booths on both sides of the lake. Explanations on board are in English and French and the views are just stunning - on clear days you can see as the summit of Mont Blanc and other Alpine peaks. The shortest way ticket is around 19 francs (a little less if you use the transportation Geneve Card)

Cruise on the lake

Two companies (CGN Swissboat) offer tours on Lake Geneva starting from Geneva. For my part, I cruise the siren with Swiss Boat. This one-hour cruise allows us to show all important monuments and homes around the lake. First we pass the fountain, which spits out his top 140 meters high, and then we pass the Grange Park, famous for its rose garden. Further, hidden behind the trees, the castle of Belle Rive was built for Charles Emmanuel II of Savoy. A mermaid statue resting on the water, we plot. This is a sculpture made in 1966 by a Russian artist. Returning to Geneva, it passes in turn to the mansion Golegate, the House of Rothschild, the Chinese Embassy, ​​the villa Batholoni. In the distance we see the UN and the Mont Blanc, before returning to port.

Croisière sur le lac

Deux sociétés (CGN et SwissBoat) proposent des tours sur le lac Léman en partant de Genève. Pour ma part, j’ai fait la croisière de la sirène avec Swiss Boat. Cette croisière d’une heure permet de nous montrer tous les monuments ou habitations importantes qui bordent le lac. Tout d’abord nous passons devant le jet d’eau, qui crache son haut à 140 mètres de haut, puis nous longeons le parc de la Grange, réputé pour sa roseraie. Plus loin, caché derrière les arbres, le château de Belle-Rive a été construit pour Charles-Emmanuel II de Savoie. Une statue de sirène posée sur l’eau, nous intrigue. C’est une sculpture faite en 1966 par une artiste russe. En revenant vers Genève, on passe tour à tour devant le manoir Golegate, la maison Rothschild, l’ambassade de Chine, la villa Batholoni. Au loin, on aperçoit l’ONU et le Mont-Blanc, avant de revenir au port.
