The Savoie

The Savoie : Lake Geneva at Nyon, CH

In Switzerland, if you want to get from one side of Lake Geneva to the other, you aren't limited to driving around or taking a train. There are several boats you can catch from Geneva, Nyon, Lausanne, Montreux, and other ports in Switzerland to ports in France like Yvoire, Evian-les-Bains, and Chens-sur-LĂ©man. This is a photo of the Savoie, arriving at Nyon. Boats that plow this lake bear the flags of both countries. On this boat, the French flag is seen on the bow, while the Swiss flag flies off the stern.
