Shopping and parking in Geneva

I'm thinking of popping over to Geneva this afternoon for a quick shop. Just general shops - maybe some new trainers and clothes.

Ideally, I'd like free parking, but I guess that's not going to happen. So, is there anywhere that has cheap parking/deals of cheaper parking after you've bought something etc.?

If you plan in the centre ville, the cheapest i think is the main La Poste parking on rue de montbrilliant near the train station.

Re: Shopping and parking in Geneva

After touring a good part of town for many a minute looking for the ultimate precious parking place... most people give up and pick the first paying parking lot they can find. It's either that or sometimes walk a few Kms.
Never heard of cheap parking in Geneva

Re: Shopping and parking in Geneva

I just wanna ask: is 'free' parking to roads permitted in geneva and switzerland?

If I park my car in a non-central road, is it ok?

Re: Shopping and parking in Geneva

So everytime I want to go somewhere (city, country) do I have to find a paid parking?
No free parking at all, nowhere in Switzerland?

There is free parking, but it is very scare, due to the cost and availability of land.... have you done no homework on this country whatsoever!
