Hola Maggie,

I hae travelled several times to Geneve and Zurich with Swissair, they have some good prices if you book some time in advance. Have a look here:

There is also Easyjet Barcelona to Geneva or the overnight train. www.easyjet.com www.renfe.es

Do you really want to spend your time in a city or would you prefer to stay in a mountain location,

If you let us know what your interest are then I'm sure thet people will be able to give you the right advice.

Please also peruse the boxes on the right hand side of the Switzerland forum.

Hi Maggie,

I can suggest a name or two but then it will be my trip not YOURS.

You have not mentioned your travel likes and preferences - is it the mountains or lakes / sporting activities / or city sights that you would like to do?

Take a look at this site,it will give you info on all the cities you mention plus some more.You could then refer back to the forum for fine-tuning the itinerary.


This one is the train site - all schedules,fares etc.


Have fun.


Hi HoseAntonio,

I am curious - what would be the rough time involved for air-travel - the flight is 2 hours - transfer from hotel in Barcelona to airport / check-in / check-out at Geneva / transfer to hotel in Geneva ? ( I love train journeys and this one takes around 8 to 9 hours ).

Joseantnio is right. The connection to the airports are easy and short, almost negligible. What I don´t understand is the price, it is very high when I chose Switzerland as my country. It (even the return price) came down to a fraction when I re-entered as Canada.
