One very beautiful park, right near the lake, with a walkway to the very famous and must-see Geneva's "Jet-d'eau" (water-fountain) on one side, and the Mont-Blanc bridge on the other.

The "english garden" is actually a small park with a great view of the "Rade" (the lake area). In the summer there are concerts and food truck there.

Monument / Landmark
“Sure you can see the water fountain from afar but actually going there is a whole other experience. In the summer you can rent a small boat for up to 6 people without a license and there are lots of activities for locals and tourists. There are also restaurants and bars around if you want to relax and take a break. ”

Church
“We always take our guests to climb the stairs of the cathedral to admire the 360º view of Geneva. Extrait from Know-it-all passport®: 12th century structure includes an eclectic mix of styles. It is best known as the adopted home church of John Calvin, one of the leaders of the Protestant Reformation. Inside the church is a wooden chair used by Calvin. Note: Fantastic 360° view of Geneva and surrounding mountains from the top. Climb up the 153 stairs, revel in the magnificent views along the way and discover the inner workings of this historical landmark. If you can stand loud noises, then make sure you are at the top on the hour so you can hear at close-hand the bells ring. There are 2 towers, North and South. Note: Please respect the red light/green light system on some of the narrow spiral stairs that allow traffic flow with a one-way system. Price to climb up the tower: Fr. 5.-/adult, Fr. 2.-/child age 6-16. Open October through May 10h-17h30 (Sunday from 12h), June through September 9h30-18h30, Saturday till 17h, Sunday 12h-18h30.”

Art Museum
“The Museum of Art and History is the city's largest and one of its most important institutions. The museum is housed within a building designed by Marc Camoletti and constructed from 1903 to 1910; the building's exhibition space covers four floors and 7,000m². the building itself is a treasure with an inner courtyard, and a façade featuring sculptures by Paul Amlehn and a triangular gable with an allegorical depiction of the arts. In a frieze on the upper section of the façade, there are the names of Genevan artists. The collections are divided into thematic categories focusing on Applied Arts, Fine Art, and archaeology. There is an art section in the museum with paintings from the middle ages to the 20th century including works by Konrad Witz, Rembrandt, Modigliani, and Rodin. An Applied Arts section has Byzantine art, medieval weapons, silverware and historic musical instruments among the collection. Part of the museum has been turned into the 17th century interior of the Lower Castle Zizers complete with wood paneling and furniture. In the archaeology, the section pieces from prehistoric Europe, ancient Egypt, African, Greek, and Roman cultures. Other interesting pieces in the collection are medieval stained glass, 12th-century armor, Swiss watches, and Greek vases.”
