Then, we move to the city center and then walk on the Calvary path towards the Mont d'Arbois where we will have dinner at the R'Shot restaurant (in front of the Mont d'Arbois lift roundabout). Although the walk is refreshing, interesting and not hard, you may go directly on your own to the restaurant either by taxi, horse sleigh or ski bus (the final one to Mont d'Arbois starts at Megève Autogare at 19H40 the latest and you have to stop at "Télécabine et Parking du Mont d'Arbois". However, come walking with us, it will be fun ;-)  

Social Dinner 20:00:00 22:00:00

 (An "after" social dinner is also planned, for example, in a jazz club in Megève city centre, more info will be given on site)
