Things to see in Geneva
No doubt, it is the monument to visit for all tourists. Whether you are passing through or on site for a long stay, SPI recommends that you visit the water jet. Originally, it was used to relieve pressure with its 150 meters high. Since the early 1990s, it has become an essential attraction.
Once the air is fresh from the water jet, we recommend that you go to the old town. You will find many green spaces such as the English garden and the botanical garden, small and very unusual shops as well as sumptuous art galleries.
And finally for fashion enthusiasts, you can’t avoid the famous rue du rhône with all its luxury boutiques.
