    Essential Geneva

    Indagare can arrange a customized Geneva itinerary suited to your interests with guided touring, boat charters and exclusive reservations. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.

    • Day 1: On the Water

      Also known as Lake Léman, Lake Geneva is the life of the city and one of the largest lakes in Western Europe. In the summertime, locals spend their days swimming and boating. A private boat charter on the lake can introduce visitors to the quaint towns, neighborhoods, castles and terraced vineyards surrounding the lake’s shores.

    • Day 2: Old Town

      Discover the cobblestoned streets of Switzerland’s largest Old Town with sights such as Saint Peter’s Cathedral and City Hall with an Indagare-vetted city guide. Science buffs should tour CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, with an expert scientist to see the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments, while shoppers should visit Carouge, a cozy neighborhood full of local boutiques and quaint cafes.

    • Day 3: Hiking and Wine Tasting

      Located just beyond the city center are Geneva’s best-kept secrets: picturesque hiking trails and 4,000 acres of vineyards. Indagare can steer you to the best hikes that are commensurate with your ability and help you choose the best vineyards for you according to your tastes.

Indagare's Kira Reinke
“Geneva strikes the perfect note between city and country: it is a major financial and diplomatic center, but is also strikingly beautiful, with the lake carving out the city center and the majestic Alps looming above.”
