Visitors often take pictures of the 140m Jet D’eau, enjoy a stroll through the cobbled streets of the old town and relax over lunch at a café on the lake. The Red Cross Museum and the United Nations are interesting ways to spend an afternoon.
Travellers often visit Zurich from Geneva or head to the pretty mountains towns hopping on and off trains with the Swiss Pass. Those going further to Italy or France get a regional rail pass.
Reviews & ratings Paris - Geneva
"Paris to London on Eurostar"Clara l.
A vast difference from the TGV train we took from Geneva to Paris. The train was prompt in arrival and there was clear order in getting on board the train. There was a staff at each cabin waiting to help on any queries. As we were boarding, he said the cabin we were in did not have any more space for our luggage and suggested we move our luggage to another cabin for storage. He even made the effort to walk us to the cabin and helped us to store the luggage. Everything was very clear and the journey was very enjoyable.
"Swiss efficiency "Mary h. 28/10/2013
Getting to Paris from Geneva is simple - hop the train, settle back, enjoy the ride and the view and in 3 short hours arrive in Gare de Lyon. The train is quiet, in 1st class they provide a plated snack, lots of non-alcoholic drinks, and the option to have a pre-arranged taxi on arrival.
"pleasant and comfortabl"Ahmed Shahan k. 24/09/2013
We traveled from Paris to Geneva and the whole experience was great. The only thing which can improve is a little guidance and signboards at the Paris train station. Rest of the experience was great. Train departed/arrived on time, interior was neat and clean and friendly staff. 5 stars from me.
"Caen to Paris"Martin h. 23/09/2013
For price when booked early 2nd class works ok. Given trip was aprx 2hr 20min value good for price. Website easy to use. It would be helpful to be able to have E-ticket rather than expense of couier of paper ticket.
"Awesome trip"Vivek k. 22/09/2013
I was on my honeymoon trip to Europe (Switzerland and Paris) and we took a deviation from our group tour from Geneva to Paris (Gare De Lyon) via TGV Lyria in Ist Class, and the experience was so often as it was my childhood dream to travel in TGV since it was newly introduced by that time. The complementary meal was served as breakfast, which could be added somewhat with Indian food choice as well, the train reached on time at Paris. Overall, it was an excellent experience, and will be traveling atleast one journey in future European tours also via TGV :) I hope TGV will maintain its same reputation throughout.
