Breakfast at the Hotel Strasborg set us up for the day, then wrapping up against the chill we set off to explore Geneva’s city centre. Starting with a long walk along the banks of Lake Geneva we viewed the Jet d’Eau, Geneva’s lakeshore attraction which spurts water 140 metres into the air. Along from there is Bains des Paquis, Geneva’s city centre beach, not much happening in early January but we did find a small waterfront cafe for warming mugs of hot chocolate topped with whipped cream. Moving inland to the old town which was practically deserted on this bitterly cold January morning as we explored the small squares and cobbled streets.
