Geneva to Genoa, Italy

by jburks1

Plan to drive from Geneva, Suisse to Genoa, Italy and would like suggestions on a great city, town, village to stay over night along the way. Could possibly alter the route to Turin, Italy, but more importantly would like to find a place to spend the night in the French-Italian Alps region.

Re: Geneva to Genoa, Italy

by Manara

My suggestion is to drive along the norther shore of the lake, through Lausanne, Vevey, Montreaux, head to Martigny and from there to the Grand St Bernard pass. For a scenic view I recommend to forget the tunnell and choose the road of the pass. From there you will get to Aosta. For your overnight stay I would suggest the village of Fenis, with a beautiful castle.

It is always better to be informed about road conditions.

Eat Savoie!
Like in...

by Diplomat

Eat Savoie!

Like in Switzerland in the mountain raclette is very famous here. It is usually served with ham accompanied by a wine of Savoie. Savoie cuisine is also rich with local products of character: pate, local cheese, pike fisch from the lake, 'pormoniers' – sausages with herbs and vegetables.

This is restaurant L´Ancolie at Cruseilles, where we had a splendid 8 course dinner with the most complete cheese plate I´ve ever seen!

On of the best 5 Michelin (red=pleasant) star restaurants in the world with 3 exceptional local cuisine flowers is located at Veynier-du-Lac and called

Aubergine de l´Éridan

And now to my traveloque of Annecy...

Climb the stairs.Any number from 154 to 159.

by dabidc

Why Off the Beaten Path, there are not many people who will climb a circular stone staircase, and even fewer who want to be perched in the air, too high they say or I fear heights.

So yes it is for the fearless or foolish or the young at heart.

The views are almost self explanatery with views from the tower of the Cathedral of St Pierre, looking over the lake or the city of Geneva.

Excursion - France

by jacob_m

Geneva is very close to the French border, make some one-day excursions to French cities like Lyon, the small and old town Annecy, and the city of the Olympic games, Grenoble. Or why don't just go up in the mountains and enjoy the beautiful view, the highest mountain in Europe, Mont Blanc, is neither far away.

Summer hang-out

by vanessadb about Carouge

Carouge is a small little town in the outskirts of Geneva that becomes very happening during the Summer days. The main square, Place du Marche (Market Place), is full of bars and terraces that are all packed as soon as it nice and warm outside.

Rue Vautier is a street that runs from the Market Place where you'll also find some cool bars: Marchand de Sable, Cafe de la Plage, Chat Noir and Cafe de la Forge.

Carouge is also worth visitng during the daytime: the Sainte-Croix church, the market, the artisan's workshops and galleries, etc. casual
