Lac de Genéve

(Lake Genéve)


The croissant-shaped Lake Geneva, bluest of the Swiss lakes, is ringed with villages, castles and gorgeous walks that demand attention. This is wine country, with vineyards spread around the full sweep of the lakeshore and carpeting the first slopes of the hills which rise behind. The lake has had various names over the centuries. The Romans called it Lacus Lemanus. In the Middle Ages it was known as the Lac de Lausanne, reflecting that city's importance. Between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, when Geneva rose to world fame, its title changed to the Lac de Genéve.
