Doesn’t every city break have to include visiting a view spot? The London Eye and The Shard in London, The Eiffel Tower in Paris, The Empire State Building in New York.
When we were in Geneva we went to a view with a difference. You take the cable car up to the top of a (smallish) mountain and you can take in all the beautiful views below. What I loved most about this spot was that you can also walk around the top of the mountain as there are a few trails to choose from. So a view but also a chance to have a walk. It’s also really easy to reach the mountain, just a short bus ride from the city centre.
Isn’t there something special about seeing buildings get smaller and smaller as you go higher and higher.
Not a bad view to enjoy a picnic over either. If you look closely you can see the The Jet d’Eau ~ The Waterfountain on the far left of the lake. That thing is huge! I also saw it illuminated on my evening flight when I left Geneva.
