If you are looking for some romantic atmosphere and unity with a partner - go for a walk along the shore of Lake Geneva. Not many are aware of benefits of visiting these amazing places at night. The main decoration of the lake is the Jet d'Eau fountain, which in its power is in no way inferior to many large waterfalls. The fountain can be approached quite close by a special bridge, if you decide on an unusual adventure, be sure to take a good raincoat with you, without it you should not approach the fountain close.

These boats are the part of the urban water transport system, and that is the reason for the low prices. You can also spend a day on a cruise boat which works on different routes. The most popular and successful route for admiring the landscapes of Lake Geneva is the M1 - M2 - M4.
