Do & Eat: Old Town, GenevaExplore the heart of Geneva followed by a traditional Swiss lunch
From the train station walk towards the lake and across the Pont du Mont Blanc for a view of the famous Jet d’Eau fountain on your left. Walk through Place du Molard and up into the Old Town where you should stop by the M.A.D.Gallery to see its extraordinary kinetic sculptures. Wander through the Old Town’s winding streets, passing by the pretty Place du Bourg-de-Four, and visit some of Geneva's architectural treasures: Saint-Pierre cathedral, with its twin spires, and Maison Tavel, the city’s oldest private house and now a museum of urban history containing the Magnin Relief, a huge 3D model created in the 19th century that shows Geneva as it looked before 1850, when its fortifications were torn down. End your wander with a traditional Swiss lunch in Les Armures.
