As a part of our road trip from Geneva to Tours, we will be stopping in the Lac Leman region for 3 days. After researching for days on Trip Advisor, here is the itinerary we came up with - but we would love to hear critiques or advice from those with more experience as this will be our first time in the region.
Friday May 20: Arrive at night in Geneva from Chamonix (Overnight in Geneva)
Saturday May 21: Train to Lausanne where we will be spending the next 2 nights. After dropping off our luggage on Saturday morning, we are thinking of using lake transport to cruise to Lavaux, Lutry, Vevey, and Chillon. After visiting the castle at Chillon (hopefully around sunset), we would walk the promenade to Montreux where we would explore the town before taking the train back to Lausanne. We would like to walk the vineyards around Lavaux when we stop there, but is this the right season for that? Also, is this too ambitious for one day? Should we cut out some of the stops?
Sunday May 22: Take an early train to Vevey/Montreux and go on a day trip to Gruyeres/Broc. Return to Lausanne. I heard this is a full-day activity. Is this accurate or will we have time to add anything else to this day? If so, any recommendations?
Monday May 23: Depart Lausanne. We don't have to be anywhere until the evening when we need to go to Divonnes-Les-Bains. We are thinking of using this day to do a quick tour of Geneva since we would not have had a chance to see the town on Friday. Alternatively, perhaps we could visit Evian if that would be more worthwhile.
What do you guys think? I would love to add the Tulip festival in Morges, but I fear that it might be over by May 21 or 22 :(
