Pass By: Geneva, Geneva
Welcome to beautiful Geneva and its amazing Old Town, easily accessible on foot. Here you will see the main monuments, landmarks of a rich historical past as well as the imprint left by Calvin on the mentality and the lifestyle of the inhabitants.
Explore the English Garden with the famous flower clock and a sculpted bronze water fountain. Then walk up the long stairway passage and end up behind Saint Peter's Cathedral, Geneva's best-known landmark. The Saint Peter's Cathedral stands tall on the site of an ancient Roman Temple from the 4th century and was the starting point of Calvinist protestantism in the 16th century. Saint Peter's Cathedral was originally built in a Romanesque style with some Gothic influence, but today the cathedral displays a fusion of different styles, continuing to charm visitors from all over the world.
After visiting the cathedral it’s time to explore the City Hall, with cannons that date from the 16th and 17th centuries. The building, which has a cobblestone ramp, has witnessed some of the city's most important diplomatic events.
Our next point of interest is Place du Bourg-de-Four, a place that was first a Roman Forum and later a medieval town square. The Palais de Justice was built here in 1707, but it has housed the court of law only since 1860.
From there you walk down to the Bastions Park where you will find the famous Reformation Wall memorial. The Monument was built in 1917 along a 16th-century rampart, beneath the walls of the Old Town on the Promenade des Bastions. The 91m long monument represents John Knox, Calvin, Théodore de Bèze, and Guillaume Farel -- the four Genevese reformers.
We will end our tour in Place de Neuve, another important landmark, known as the cultural heart of Geneva. Here you can see the impressive Grand Theatre, built in 1879 but renovated after a fire in 1951, the Conservatoire de Musique, and the Musée Rath.
