Breakfast in town and a stroll along the Arve…


How about going for a walk this week? Whether you want to stay in town or go in the country, Geneva offers a lot of options for short and easy walks. A really nice one is to go along the Arve River;

It’s a good idea to take bus number 8 to Pont-Sierre to and begin from there to walk all the way back to Jonction. Or you go in the other direction and start from Jonction. Make sure you have good shoes, as it might get a bit muddy! You’ll be walking through forests and see great autumn-coloured trees; you will also go via Carouge. What I also find interesting is the colour of the water that keeps changing and all the birds you can observe if you are quiet enough. If you need a map you can find one here.

The City of Geneva website has a list of 10 walks that are all quite fun to do, especially to discover or re-discover parks, museums and places you probably haven’t even noticed.

I would start the day with breakfast before the walk but feel free to have brunch after your exercise! A good place is Chez Quartier, on rue Voltaire behind the train station.

It’s a great little tearoom where you basically choose what you want to eat, help yourself and pay at the end by letting them know what you’ve had. It’s the Swiss trust system at its best. It’s also a good way to test your memory! They make savoury spinach rolls and delicious quiches. They also have great jams and croissants! (Open from 7am to 7pm)

Originally from France, I’ve been living abroad for 15 years... My background is in Education. I’ve been in Geneva for 6 years now and I'm loving it. At first I found it boring but then I found out that most of what it has to offer is hidden. As I love going out and exploring, this big village is just like a playground for me: I'm having tons of fun and I hope I can share it with you! I head up the Out and About and Lazy Sunday sections of Biskotti so if you're organizing an exciting event, be sure to invite me!
