      Geneva Annecy

      by sandeepgarg Online Now Mar 31, 2014 at 7:22 PM

      We are a group of 9. We land at Geneva airport on 14th May at 8.20 AM.

      We would 1st like to wander around Geneva for a few hours

      Then go to ANNECY in late afternoon (preferably by road -- old??), and stay the night there.

      Reach Lausanne by the 15th May afternoon. (Next day -- 16th-- want to visit Gruyere and Broc and then onto Interlaken)

      We will have the Swiss train Railpass.

      How do we work this out, if it is feasible?? Especially the Geneva- Annecy -Lausanne portion. The costing should not be too high.

      Thanks

    • Annecy by rental car from Nice - is it worth visiting / driving (travelling end Jan 2014)?

      by pratulc Online Now Dec 14, 2013 at 10:22 PM

      Hello, my wife and I intend driving from Nice at the end of January for 3 days and then on to Paris. Could I get some help in making my decisions: (apologies for the copious questions)
      Is winter the fine to visit Annecy?
      Are the roads safe - will soft tyres do on the rental car or do I need chains?
      Do I understand correctly that the best route from Nice would be by via Geneva?
      Do I need to book accommodation in advance my stay to get a 'reasonable' price?
      To travel to Paris from Annecy do I need to head towards Lyon?
      If the questions are too many, I am happy to do the research if I am pointed in the right direction.
      Thanks in advance - Pratul

      Best Way to Travel from Lyon to Annecy

      by elisabethsb Online Now Oct 10, 2013 at 2:02 PM

      I'm planning a trip from Montpellier up through the Rhone-Alpes region in November with my mom. Although we're hoping to visit Lyon, we would absolutely LOVE to spend a day in Annecy. I've been comparing shuttles and trains, but would really appreciate some advice -- so, in your opinion, what is the best way to get from Lyon to Annecy?

      (PS. Bonus question: what is the city like in November? Is it a good time to visit or would we be better off elsewhere?)

      Getting Around: Annecy To Nice

      by LeslieofTodd Online Now Feb 11, 2013 at 9:46 AM

      As part of an 18 day visit to France I will be traveling from Annecy to Nice in early May 2013 and I would like advice on the best way to travel between these two cities. By train, it would appear that I would need to be aboard the train in Annecy before 7am in order to arrive in Nice in daylight (and I do consider this important as I will be traveling alone and like to be settled in by nightfall). I would consider flying but I'm not sure what combination of transport this would require. Any advice on the most sensible way to get from Annecy to Nice would be greatly appreciated.

      We plan to be in Annecy for 3 days and hope to go to Chamonix for 2 days in late September 2013.Would it be better to go by train or by bus?
      We hope to take the telecabins up to Arquilla du Mide for the day and wonder if we will be able to continue on the Telecabins.Panoramic MontnBlanc to Pointe Helbronner as we understand that this service operates from mid May to Mid September.
      Would it be possible for us to leave Chamonix by train in the morning for Paris so that we can enjoy the beautiful scenery? The SNCF site came up with only I overnight service when typed in Carmonix to Paris.In fact I had to use an earlier date in March as September train timetable is not available yet.
      Any comments or advice would be much appreciated.
