Lyon to Geneva itinerary critic.

Jump to last reply

I have a chance to return to France and would like to see some cities I've not been to. The places of interest are:- Strasbourg, Lyon, Dijon, Beaune, Avignon and Marseille. I;d also like to tour the UN head quarters in Geneva, Switzerland so I'd like to include Geneva on this upcoming trip. I have been to Avignon ages ago but I've not been to any of the other cities I list.

I must fly into Lyon as I've already my ticket to France, I am flexible which city I end the trip in and will fly from there. I've reworked my itinerary and would like feedback on how to improve it and whether it's a good itinerary to follow. Here's my drafted itinerary:-

Day 1, arrive Lyon,
Day 2, Lyon
Day 3, Lyon
Day 4, depart on an early morning train to Strasbourg, sightseeing in Strasbourg
Day 5, depart on an early morning train to Dijon, sightseeing in Dijon
Day 6, day trip from Dijon to Beaune return to Dijon for an overnight stay
Day 7, depart on an early morning train to Avignon, sightseeing in Avignon
Day 8, day trip to Marseille return to Avignon for an overnight stay
Day 9, early morning train to Geneva, sightseeing in Geneva
Day 10, a day trip from Geneva to Gruyere for the cheese factory, and perhaps the Bloc chocolate factory.
Day 11, sightseeing in Geneva and a second chance to visit the UN incase there are no more ticketed available when I arrive on day 9. Depart Geneva in the evening.

How does this itinerary look? Is it doable? What changes should I make?

I'm debating if a French rail pass is the best option or individual tickets. If I get a French rail pass, it won't cover the journey to Geneva on day 9.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.
