9 great day trips from Geneva, Switzerland

Gruyeres, Switzerland - country landscapeGeneva, Switzerland is a great city to visit. There are many things to see in Geneva, but sometimes people are fortunate to be able to spend more time in Geneva and would like to see some other places around the city. I was able to visit Geneva several times and I learned about a few beautiful places right around Geneva. Each is within easy driving distance and makes for a great day trip.

Annecy, France – Local farmers’ festival in a medieval location

Annecy, France - Farmer Festival We visited Annecy, France at the beginning of October and stumbled upon this beautiful farmers’ festival. It took me a while to figure out what the name of this festival was but I finally found it: Return from alpine pasture (Le Retour des Alpages). It takes place the second Saturday of October, every year. We just happened to visit Annecy on that Saturday and it was great…We sampled local food, saw a cow parade and listened to local music…all this with tons of other people.
