After exploring the international district and the countryside, leave some time to delve into Geneva's history. From Place du Rhône to Place de Neuve, you will be enchanted by Geneva's utterly charming Old Town. Uncover its treasures and hidden gems with an audio guide available in six languages (French, English, German, Spanish, Italian and Japanese). If you have time, the majestic St Pierre Cathedral is well worth a visit. Climb to the top of its 157 steps for a vista of breathtaking scenery.

If you like watches and have an interest in horology, don't miss the Patek Philippe Museum. It boasts a watch collection that dates from the 16th century to today. It also has an impressive library devoted entirely to watchmaking.

And if you liked the Red Cross Museum, why not continue in this vein by visiting the Ethnographic Museum of Geneva (MEG)? This profoundly human exhibition showcases cultures from all four corners of the globe.

On the other hand, if contemporary art is more your thing, you will love the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MAMCO)! It is a major fixture of the contemporary scene and enjoys international renown. The museum owns a third of the collection of over 4,000 works on its premises.
