    Lausanne to Evian

    by Kiriel Written Mar 20, 2008

    If you want to get to Evian from Lausanne, the quickest and easiest way to go is by public transport: boat. The trip takes around 35-40 minutes and is a very pleasant trip too!

    You can find the details (timetable and costs) for boat transport from Lausanne to Evian here:

    However as the bord du lac is very pretty I can recommend a slower cruise trip too!

    Specialty Trains - Le Pleiades Train

    by Callavetta Updated Apr 15, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From Vevey there are specialty trains that take you to various detinations. This one goes to Le Pleiades, high atop the mountains overlooking the lake. It's well worth the trip. The train stops at small towns along the way.

    "Steam" Ships on Lake Geneva

    by Callavetta Written Apr 13, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the most pleasurable afternoons I spent on Lake Geneva was the five hour boat ride from Vevey to Geneva. Sitting outside in the sun, eagerly watching the arrival of each now town we stopped out and jotting them down in my journal for future visits, truly felt like I was living the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Crew members come around to take drink orders.

    As you near Geneva, you get a great view Mt Blanc. Jet d'eau signals that the trip is nearing its end, the giant plume of water shooting up into the lake.

    From Geneva, you can walk a few blocks to the train station and take a one hour train back to Vevey.

    All Aboard!

    This train leaves the station in Vevey and travels through the vineyards that line the hillsides in the Vaud. Its stops allow passengers to sample some of the specialties of the area.
