Located in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, the Canton of Geneva is a blend of cosmopolitan life and natural beauty. Known globally for its diplomatic and international significance, Geneva also boasts an impressive list of attractions ranging from the Jet d'Eau (Water Jet) to its charming Old Town and beautiful vineyards.

Getting Around

Car Hire and Driving

Exploring Geneva and its surroundings in a car is convenient and can be quite enjoyable. Remember, like the rest of continental Europe, vehicles here ride on the right-hand side of the road. Thus, unlike back home in the UK, your steering wheel will be on the left-hand side.


Speed Limits

Speed limits in Switzerland can be lower than those in the UK. Typical speed limits are 50 km/h in towns, 80 km/h on country roads, and 120 km/h on motorways. Remember, 1 km equals roughly 0.62 miles, so be cautious.


Parking

Geneva features both underground and surface parking spaces. The city also follows the 'Blue Zone' parking scheme, allowing free parking for a maximum of one hour between 8 am and 7 pm. Remember to display a parking disc on your dashboard indicating the time you parked the vehicle.

Attractions & Insider Tips

The Jet d'Eau

This is one must-see attraction. The Jet d'Eau is one of the tallest water fountains in the world, reaching an incredible 140 meters (460 feet) high! Best admired from a distance to avoid the spray, especially if visiting in cooler months.


Vineyards Tours

Did you know Geneva is the third-largest wine-producing canton in Switzerland? Its mainly white wines are renowned worldwide, but are not largely exported, so make sure not to miss these local specialities.


The Old Town

Stroll through the charming cobbled streets of Geneva's Old Town. Here, you'll find a labyrinth of small alleys filled with cafes, boutiques, and historical landmarks, including St. Peter's Cathedral.

Climate & Best Time to Visit

Geneva has a temperate climate, with warm summers and cool winters. If you are looking to enjoy outdoor activities and sightseeing, the best time for a visit would be from June to August. For winter sports enthusiasts, December to March is the ideal time.

Currency

Switzerland might be in the heart of Europe but it doesn’t use the Euro. Here, you will need Swiss Francs for both large and small purchases. Most places accept cards, but it can be useful to always have a few Francs in your pocket for minor expenses.

Exploring Beyond Geneva

Consider day-trips to nearby regions such as Lausanne or even across the French border to cities like Annecy and Chamonix. The picturesque countryside and stunning mountain vistas are well worth the drive.

So, ready to pack your bags and venture to the magnetic Geneva in a rented car? Let’s indulge in the Swiss sophistication and natural scenery that await!
