I am flying into Geneva early on the morning of Sunday July 17. While in France I was thinking of travelling from the airport to Annecy and then back to Lake Geneva for a boat trip to Lausanne where I am staying the night before heading to Bern the next morning. I need to be in Bern by midday on Monday.
*I would appreciate your thoughts on the best way of accomplishing/enjoying the above (or alternatives) - including the most scenic of the routes, luggage storage prior to boat trip and whether it is worthwhile taking the longer train route from Lausanne via Visp to Bern.
During my week in Bern (besides exploring the city) I am hoping to have at least two half days available to venture further afield - maybe from 4-6 hours duration. I have some thoughts but would love your suggestions.
Finally I will leave Bern early on the Sunday morning to arrive for a flight out of Zurich at 1pm on the following day.
With due regard to your suggested half day excursions (trying to avoid overlap) how can I make the best use of this time to capture further memories? Given that the last time I was in Switzerland was 50 years ago all recommendations are welcome! I am fit and solo.
I am guessing that a Half Fare travel pass would be worthwhile?
Thank you for this wonderful website and your greatly appreciated contributions.
