The best way to explore Geneva is on a walking excursion. With a professional guide, you will be able to see the main gems of the city:
- Jet d'Eau, the famous fountain that has become the symbol of Geneva;
- a flower clock in the English Garden with 6500 flowers (the world's first florist show was opened in the 1950s);
- Old town with gothic town hall and Saint Pierre cathedral.
The Les Pâquis district - one of the liveliest and most picturesque districts in Geneva - is worth a separate excursion in English. Here - among bistros, nightclubs and hipster boutiques - you will see the following architectural sights:
- the Mont-Blanc quay;
- Wilson's Palace;
- Mausoleum of Charles II of Braunschweig.
