On arrival at Geneva Airport follow the signs from the terminal to our desk in the vehicle rental centre. Our city centre branch is just a few minutes walk from Geneva's Cornavin train station while the Geneva (Genf) Vernier office is located near the Audi AMAG garage where buses 6, 19 and 23 from the city centre stop.
Although roads and directions in Geneva are clearly signposted, navigating the city streets is made even easier with a Sat Nav. Roads are generally single lane with plenty of traffic lights that keep the traffic moving. Turning left at intersections is not allowed in Switzerland so plan your route carefully. As with many European countries, children under 12 are not allowed to travel in the front of vehicles.
Parking in the Place des Nations gives you easy access to most of Geneva's tourist attractions while other car parks and garages can be found across the city.
Take a drive around Geneva looking out for highlights such as the Jet d'Eau, which spurts water 140 m into the air, the Palais des Nations and the Brunswick Monument before parking in the Place des Nations. From here enjoy a stroll around the Old Town. Near the Pont du Mont Blanc bridge you'll discover the much-photographed Flower Clock and bronze water fountain in the English Garden. Climb up the hill and stairway passage to visit Geneva City Hall and St Peter's Cathedral. If you are particularly interested in archaeology a tour beneath the cathedral takes you back in time to ancient Roman times. Enjoy a picnic lunch in Bastions Park with its Reformation Wall Memorial before taking in some museums such as the Red Cross or Natural History museums. For something a little different take the short drive to Carouge. This suburb once belonged to the King of Sardinia and retains a distinctive feel of Italy.
