Things to do in your hire car in Geneva

Driving to the city in your rental car, you will pass the Jet d’Eau fountain, one of several spectacular water displays in the city.  Geneva city sits around Lake Geneva, and the city seems filled with water, plants and life, such as the Flower Clock.  A tour of the city must include a cruise or boat tour on the lake itself.  Landmark highlights include the Palais des Nations, home of the UN since 1966.

With its French influence, there is a wealth of fine cuisine to be sampled.  Try the Bistrot du Boucher and Alliance Gourmande.  You can also enjoy a meal and catch a show at the Le Palais Mascotte Cabaret Bar.

Out of the city by rental car

Geneva is home to CERN, the Large Hadron Collider.  A group of scientists have dug out this massive construct under the ground hoping to discover the origins of the universe.  There are two fantastic exhibitions open to the public to learn more about this world-changing undertaking.  The European Organisation for Nuclear Research is also located near to Geneva.

Once you have learned the secrets of the Big Bang, take your rental car to the Swiss Alps.  Mont Blanc is in this region and easily accessible on a hire car day trip.  Enjoy hikes in a national park, from a gentle stroll to a more challenging exploration of the foothills.  The scenic drive through the Lausanne and Montreux valley is not to be missed.  Make sure to bring a picnic of fine breads and Swiss cheese!  Plan to stop by the beautiful lakeside castle Chateau de Chillon.
