I got my free pass for all public transportation from the hotel and I was ready to Hop On the Bus Number 10 - that's the one going from the airport to the city centre. It departs every 10 minutes and in less than 20 minutes you'll be downtown. Awesome, isn't it?
I had two options; Either walk from the Old City towards the river or the other way around. I chose the latter, since it was such a beautiful spring day, I wouldn't wanna miss the chance to enjoy the incredible scenery by the river.
I walked through picturesque bridges with the Alps all around me - and right before the Mont-Blanc bridge, made a stop to take a few mind-blowing photos!
Check out my view before the traffic light turns green.
Half way through though, I was so mesmerized by the view of the lake, I stopped for a while to enjoy a few moments of beauty. Is it possible I was missing out on Geneva for so long? Is it even possible for a city to be this beautiful? It's so peaceful, picturesque, clean, quiet, regal.
It's mostly regal actually.
The flower-embroidered dial showed 12:05. I started walking towards to the Old Town, while snapping every corner of my way!
First stop; Place de la Madeleine and the Terrace Agrippa d'Aubigne with a wonderful view to the lake.
I kept walking till I reached the Place du Bourg-de-Four where I sipped a cup of hot tea - perfect to enjoy under that spring sun. Time to get lost inside the Old City again!
I arrived at the Saint-Pierre Cathedral.
Oh I'm so deeply in love with those old cities!
So, take a look at what I bumped into while walking in Place Bel-Air! How could I resist?
I've had enough of Switzerland's food and my pockets knows that too well. This time, I was into a Fast - Street Food Queen mood and with a burger on hand I kept wandering in the city.
I don't quite like museums and I won't make a big, fancy list with must-see sites. Everything I saw at Geneva was whilst walking at its streets, squares and alleys. And that's how I love spending my time during traveling; simply and spontaneously. Without worries and endless lists. Choose to listen to a local rather than a map.
Old habits die hard. Thankfully.
Have you ever visited Geneva?
