Geneva, Switzerland & Annecy, France

Route: Based in Geneva, this trip follows a day journey into France, to the cute town of Annecy.

Transportation: Swissair is the major airline operating to Geneva from many airports in Europe. Visit's Geneva page for airport to city center information.

To get to Annecy, both trains and buses are available from city center and the airport.

Accommmodations: Being an international city, Geneva has plenty of options for hotels.

  • Geneva: Hotel Warwick: Slightly at the higher-end of the scale, this hotel is very centrally located, right next to the central train station. Most of the attractions are in walking distance from the hotel. Follow the deals that they might have. That's how we were able to afford it.

Food: A cross between Italian and French, the food culture in Geneva is very much influenced by its neighbors. There are some very good options, from both of these cuisines.
