9 great day trips from Geneva, Switzerland

Gruyeres, Switzerland - country landscapeGeneva, Switzerland is a great city to visit. There are many things to see in Geneva, but sometimes people are fortunate to be able to spend more time in Geneva and would like to see some other places around the city. I was able to visit Geneva several times and I learned about a few beautiful places right around Geneva. Each is within easy driving distance and makes for a great day trip.

Yvoire, France is a 700 years old medieval town

Yvoire, France - Old CastleWe loved this little town. This is a great spot for a day trip from Geneva. We would've loved to take the boat from Geneva but we didn't have enough time. The boat ride takes about two hours because it has to stop in a few places before reaching Yvoire. The boat ride looks very appealing especially on a clear day and I am sure that the views from the boat are just amazing. However, because we didn't have enough time, we decided to drive instead and it took us about 30 minutes from Geneva.
