On Twin & Solid’s second day in town, we took a boat trip around Lake Geneva. There are multiple options for boat trips. Since Twin is a flower lover, we selected the medieval village of Yvoire.
Geneva boats are operated by the CGN. On their website, you can see the possibilities. Our particular boat left Mt. Blanc at 10:15, stopping in Versoix, Coppet, and Nyon before crossing the lake to the French side and anchoring in Yvoire at noon. Full fare ride to Yvoire costs about 40 CHF, but you can use your half-fare card to get a reduction.
We caught the 4:20pm boat back to Geneva. It is the only option in the Springtime, and our visit was the last day of the Spring schedule. During the summer, there are more options for coming and going as the tourist traffic picks up.
On the way home, we had stunning views of Mt. Blanc. It is only visible a small percentage of time, so we were lucky to get the view we did:
It was a lovely day with the CGN!
