Harbour and Lake Shores

Recommended
Paris has the Eiffel Tower, London Big Ben, Athens the Acropolis... and Geneva has its water jet. Its white plume which springs from the lake to a height of 140m signals the city's presence from a long way off. It is the pride of the Genevans and a must-see attraction for tourists, and lets you discover an enchanting part of the city: the banks of Lake Léman lined with attractive houses and parks with remarkable views.
