I will be extending a business trip and flying into Geneva the third week of March. I will have 3 full days to spend. I am not planning to spend any time in Geneva but instead was hoping to explore some of the surround small towns. I’m afraid though I have found too many that are appealing! I was looking at this “loop”
Geneva -> Lausanne -> Vevey -> Gruyere -> Montreux -> Chamonix -> Annecy -> Geneva
But I am guessing that’s too much for 3 days with public transit?? What do you recommend as the best use of my time? Like I said in the title I will be a solo female traveller who likes to walk around and explore a city, try restaurants, and enjoys amateur photography. I have never been to Switzerland or anywhere in France besides Paris. I am hoping to get some good views of the Alps and cute villages and castles.
I also have a second part of this post. I don’t arrive in Geneva until almost 9pm. I see that I could still catch a train/bus to Lausanne from the airport at 10:30pm. Will that be safe by myself?
Any itineraey suggestions are greatly appreciated!!
