Roadtrip: Bordeaux to Geneva

Jump to last reply

Roadtrip Bordeaux to Geneva
Hello – I’ll be in Bordeaux, France on a Friday and have business the following week in Geneva. I was planning on making a 1 day road trip by car from Bordeaux to Geneva over the weekend. According to Google Maps, it’s a 6-7 hour drive, which is fine for me to make an entire day of the drive.
My questions are:
a) Is there a suggested route, considering I’m looking to make a day trip out of this? Google Maps suggests taking A89 as the most direct route with an option to take A40 at Riom. Does taking A40 offer anything interesting to see, or make for a more pleasurable drive in any way?
b) Anything along the way that would be worthwhile pulling off for? E.g. Nearby sights, or great restaurant for lunch? Note that I am a pescatarian, in that the only animal meat I eat is fish.
c) Is this just a dumb idea and I’m much better off taking a different mode of transportation?
Thank you for any advice!
