11 am - December, 31st - Geneva, Switzerland - We get up...barely.... and get on bus #10 for a walking tour of Geneva.
This is a chance to get away from the hotel and look at another incredible part of the city.
This town is mixed with upscale shopping and business, with the older parts, dating back to the 16th century, just blocks away.
After walking through the main part of town, we stopped through the old town. The building in the photo below to the left is the oldest residence in Geneva going back to the 16th century, but the basement is as old as the 9th century.
More photos of downtown Geneva.
You could pay 5 euro to go to the top of the church towers and boy was it worth it. Look at this view of the city.
Walking past an outdoor cafe in downtown Geneva which has many outdoor areas surrounded by small tall buildings. Here is a close up of a beautiful fountain that is spread around several parts of the city.
We headed back to the hotel to dress up for a nice meal at Molino Ristorante and a New Years celebration. Funny, but most of the eating places we have eaten at in Switzerland have been Italian Pizzaria's
Team picture at the Christmas tree just before New Years! Bonne Annee!
