–        Dear Geneva suggestion – Food markets in PlainPalais… Grab some supplies and have a delicious picnic somewhere by the lake

–       Dear Geneva suggestion – Bike ride to Versoix (or somewhere else) – grab your bike (or hire one for free from Genève Roule) and just head off.  Genève Roule have detailed bike maps available.

–       Dear Geneva suggestion – Take a beautiful CGN boat ride (weather permitting) on the Lake, enjoy the beautiful surrounds and hop of somewhere new for a little look around.

–       Dear Geneva suggestion – Why not book a return train journey somewhere new, for example, a few Sundays ago I headed to Montreux for the day, had a look around, hired a peddle boat and picnicked in the middle of the lake and enjoyed the beautiful view… not a bad Sunday as you can see here!

Stuck for things to do? Don’t forget our Sunday Survival Guide, a growing list of Sunday suggestions.
