1. Friday Jun-28 arrive in Geneva by train from Bern around noon. I would like to explore Geneva on foot that day or possibly take a guided walking tour. Any suggestions.

2. Saturday Jun-29 and Sunday Jun-30 overnight in Geneva over night: I would like to see the towns around Lake Geneva by boat, train and bus: Lausanne, Vevey, Montreux, Chillon castle, Villeneuve and St-Gingolph . I don't know how to break these places up into two days and how to reach each one or even if all are accessible.

3. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also is a Swiss Travel Pass worth it?

Hello Byardy and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

1. See neva/activities and scroll to bottom if you want self-guided walk.

2. Use the timetable on the SBB website ( or the highly-recommended SBB Mobile app ( to plan your travel. And see atlakegeneva. Yvoire, on the French side is worth a visit.

3. Is a Swiss Travel Pass worth it? Depends. What does the rest of you Swiss itinerary look like? You should read “How to choose the best travel pass” ( ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass), download the handy spreadsheet calculator and do the math. The spreadsheet also includes links to all the available passes.
