Geneva in mid-October for 4ish days - sightseeing input

Jump to last reply

DH just had a work meeting come up in Geneva for mid-October. We have never been to Switzerland and just verified that the grandparents are willing to watch the kids for several days, giving me the opportunity to tag along.

We are looking at the following--

Depart 10/11 and arrive early morning 10/12
10/12 - try to stay awake :-) - perhaps see one museum or one outdoor sight
10/13 - DH meeting (would love suggestions on what to see by myself!)
10/14 - DH in meeting for the morning
10/14 afternoon/evening - free
10/15 - free
10/16 - red eye back home

We like:
Ancient history (this is why we've done Italy 10 times and Greece 3x).
Historical Buildings - interesting churches, castles, palaces, places with a story
Street markets and street/casual food
Walking/hiking and exploring pretty gardens/trails (we lived in Colorado for many years and love to hike!)

Not really our thing-
Modern Art
Haute cuisine
High-end shopping

Normally, I am fanatical about doing my research thoroughly before asking questions. We have a lot going on at the moment though (many of you know that my oldest son has special needs), and this came up just today. We haven't had so much as a weekend away in almost 6 years, so for us, well - we are really, really excited. Thank you for any and all input.

Best,
Jill
