Useful information and tours

 

Airport logistics

From Geneva Airport, remember to take your free bus ticket (http://www.geneva.info/transport/free-ticket/): Just before the exit, in the luggage retrieval hall there is a machine next to the train ticket machine. Just press the button and a free ticket will be issued for a free ride to Geneva.

Then from the airport you can take any train (they all stop in Geneva) until the main train station (Gare Cornavin) with the same ticket.
