Full description
Start at Chez Philippe, a New York bistro style at the heart of Geneva. Enjoy a delicious hamburger with a glass of wine. Sample the "Denise" sauce, inspired by the chef's mother who made him want to become a cook.

Next, stop at a true Geneva institution, the Brasserie de l'Hôtel de Ville. Embark on a real historic journey through Old Geneva as you learn about how in 1600, the current restaurant was the city's guard room and soldiers in armor gathered in this tavern to eat. Today, film and theatre stars mix with the establishment's diverse clientele to enjoy the region's traditional dishes. Here you can try a cheese fondue or lake perch fillets - it's up to you to decide.

After discovering Geneva throughout the day, try a designer cocktail in the cozy bar of the 5* Grand Hôtel Metropole, located just by the lake. Experience this privileged meeting place for Geneva's locals, as this lounge area in the heart of the city offers you a refined and well-deserved break.

Last but not least head to Café du Remor. Find out how 3 of the family's 4 boys, Bortolo, Peppino and Giorgio, left their native village to set up their first ice-cream shop in Hamburg. Life then took them all over the world to Geneva, where each of them developed his own business. Giorgio Remor, became an emblematic figure of Geneva, and from father to son, Café Remor has remained a true institution. Here you will try a delicious homemade pastry and receive a hot drink.
