Archaeological findings beneath the church show evidence of a previous structure dating back to the 4th century, Roman Empire mosaics, an 11th-century crypt and three earlier churches. From the 8th to the 10th century there were three cathedrals which shared this location.”

“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.

“L'horloge Fleurie is a flower bed designed with the numbers and shapes of a clock, with the mechanical workings of clock hands marking time. For 45 years Geneva's flower clock was the largest flower clock in the world. Geneva's flower clock is located in Jardin Anglais (English garden) It was first created in 1955 and since then every season the clock face is replanted with a new carpet of seasonal shrubs and flowers. It is composed on 6,500 flowers and plants and is one of the city's most photographed sites.”

Plaza
“A few steps from St Peter's Cathedral, the Place du Bourg-de-Four is at the very heart of Geneva’s Old Town. Even in the past, roads leading to Geneva led inevitably to the Place du Bourg-de-Four whose market has been of major importance since the 9th century. Over time, house heights were raised to accommodate Protestant refugees from all over Europe. Don’t miss out on a visit to this delightful square and stop for a coffee or a drink.”

Frans restaurant
“This restaurant bar is all about tradition, served with a smile. Do pay attention to details: taste the local milk in the mozzarella or the burrata, think of the dough kneaded by hand on a floured surface while eating the paccheri, witness how the deli meat is sliced right in front of you. At the end of a long working day, enjoy Italy’s cocktail stars such as the Spirtz Aperol or Campari, the Americano, the Negroni, to name only a few, served with a selection of cheese and finger food; do not forget to try the wine! ”
