We traveled a short distance from Basel to our next destination in Switzerland near Zurich. My husband and I had the opportunity to travel by car and a short train ride to Geneva for a day.
We walked throughout the city and saw several wonderful sites in the warm May sunshine.
Reformation Wall is a massive (325 feet long, 30 feet high) stone wall dedicated to the founders of the Protestant Reformation movement such as John Calvin, William Farel, Theodore Beza, and John Knox.
Jet d’eau on Lake Geneva is a landmark of the city. The fountain pumps half a cubic meter of water per second 140m into the air.
St. Pierre Cathedral is a gorgeous church, over 850 years old, famous as a John Calvin preaching site.
Place du Bourg-de-Four is Geneva’s oldest square. This bustling area features high-end shops, cafes with patios & fountains and a great place for lunch!
