Yvoire Day Trip from Geneva

Geneva – Yvoire – Belle Epoque – Geneva

Board one of our comfortable coaches, then drive along Lake Geneva to the fortified village of Yvoire.

Built in 1036, Yvoire’s castle is the target of all photography-lovers of Yvoire. The military dungeon built in the 14th century was used to control the road that linked Geneva to the high valley of the Rhône, and to Italy.

Spend some free time and enjoy the atmosphere of this unique place. Regarded as one of the most beautiful villages of France, medieval Yvoire is situated right beside Leman Lake. Sample one of the local specialties – a fish dish called filet de perche – in front of the magnificent Lake.

For the return trip to Geneva, we’ll cross the lake aboard the paddle steamer Belle Epoque. You may opt to stay on in Yvoire for a longer period of time, then return by paddle steamer at a later boarding time.
