I’m going from Geneva to Milan.

The timetable says Geneva Gare Cornavin AND I have to walk for 32 minutes from there to Geneve.

i don’t know where Geneve station is.

Can someone please confirm which station the direct train departs from?

Gare Cornavin is adjacent to the main Genève Station. Just search Genève to Milan. I don’t see any 32 minute walk.

Look up Genève Station on Google Maps. You’ll see how close it is to Cornavin. They are effectively one and the same.

Despite the Annecy to Geneva flixbus being late we had enough time to ask at information at Cornavin station I showed the guy there the SBB app saying 32 min walk and he said ‘ohhh la la, de rein platform 6’. 😊

Panic averted.

Thanks rock oyster. We must be at Geneva station then - we are on the right platform anyway! Thank you.

It is almost a 32 min walk to the WC that’s for sure!!!

I didn’t realise this was a “real time” situation. Was Annecy worth it? Thinking of going there myself.

We went with a group and were there for 8 days. We did a lot of tough walks in the area. You could see the sights in a couple of days. It is beautifully clean and a very nice lakeside town where people come for the lake in summer and gentle skiing 1/2 hr drive away. Much bigger than Chamonix and not exclusively skiing.

Sometimes called the french Venice because there are canals through the town - clear snow melt water.

Food, drinks and accommodation are cheaper than Switzerland.
