If you want to read the first part of my Geneva weekend, you can check it out here.
The next day we rose bright and early to catch a cable car in France! Turns out Geneva is about a half hour drive from the French border so we thought we may as well tick off another country during our weekend away.
We caught the cable car up to Mount Salève and the view was more than worth it. Once at the top there’s a little route you can walk (around 40 minutes) through the countryside and see the beautiful Mont Blanc through the trees. I think this was actually my highlight of the whole weekend so it’s a must if you’re visiting Geneva.
After our cable car adventure, we went for a very long nap and headed out for another of my highlights of the trip: fondue. I’m not going to lie to you, when we decided we were going to Geneva, the food was all I could think of. I imagined myself tearing off pieces of a French baguette and dipping them into a boiling pot of cheese, sipping on wine and feeling like I’d made it.
This was at Buvette des Bains. Shout out to Mel (@melreylaw) for the recommendation! It was quite pricey – You pay £20 per person and they fill the pot as high as they think is necessary for how ever many people are eating. This was for 3 of us so there was PLENTY of cheese to go around.
After a few more glasses of wine, we headed back to our hotel for an early night (read: watch Eurovision).
The next day we had a few hours to kill until our flight so we headed out to the other side of the lake where there’s a little tiny beach. It was about 30 degrees, so perfect lie in the sun until you have to go to the airport weather.
I’d definitely recommend Geneva for a weekend away, either for a romantic getaway or for a girl’s weekend. It’s definitely made me determined to see more of Switzerland!
