It can be rainy and cold sometime but it depends on the time of the year you go.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would have stayed on more night at Geneva to be able to see the nightlife.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    The weather was not the best in Geneva even though we were in summer.

  • How was the food?

    It was very good! The Swiss are really known for their chocolate and cheese and you definitely should give it a try. I loved the Laduree restaurant, price a bit high but worth it. Also in Lyon L'Entrecote was exquisite.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Stay at least one night in every place so you can really get the best of the city

  • Packing tips?

    Take an umbrella and a good jacket! Annecy is white cold too as well as Geneva

  • Transportation Tips?

    The bus is really easy to use and not at all expensive.

Lodging

  • We stayed at a family home, it was great because we were able to share a great time with them and have a delicious home cooked meal.

  • We stayed in and Airbnb near downtown so we could be to a walking distance to a lot of great places.
