i will be spending 3 days in Geneva in the first week of May. what suggestions can anyone give me for visiting Mont Blanc. Also what else is there to see in Geneva
The best way to get there is by train from Geneva to Chamonix. Be aware it is 2:45 to 3:30 hours in each direction. Go to sbb.ch for train time and fare information. While in Genenva you should take a lake cruise. It is well worth it. If you like to wander go across the river to the old town. enjoy!
You may also still have buses from Geneva to Chamonix, I think they run all year long, could be shorter and cheaper than the train. You can get up on the cable car to Aiguille du Midi...not cheap, but an amazing experience. Be careful, it's only open when the weather is good, so you may need to be a little flexible.
thanks guys for all the tips. shall actively consider the bus option to Chamonix.

aussie1---I agree with the other, take the train to Chamonix. Be sure and allow some extra time in town. Lots of nice shops and restaurants. Now about the boat ride in Geneva. We have done this each and every time we have been to Geneva. The Steamer Boats leave from the downtown Geneva Harbor and goes to the other end of the lakes and returns. You can have dinner aboard. This is a pleasant rip, good food and very clean boats. Unfortunately there will not be time to get off at each stop as the boat stops and moves out very quickly. If you would like an extended stay in one of the ports, just catch a steamer that goes to that port, stay a while and catch a return steamer later.
