    The 2-day route is an invitation to escape the ordinary and explore the diversity available at the door of Geneva. From the picturesque town of Yvoire at the Leman lake to the emblematic town of Lyon passing by scenic drives across the mountains and the vineyards of Burdundy, your eyes and mind will be blown away by the nice discoveries offered to you. The route will also delight your taste buds with some of the best restaurants delivering outstanding culinary experiences.
    The road trip crosses the border between Switzerland and France, both countries are part of the Schengen area which means that as European citizen, you are free to go from one to another. However, there might be a border check. Make sure to have your identity papers with you.
