Things to do in Geneva

Wander the Left Bank to Geneva's Flower Clock ablaze with 6,500 blooms and feel the force of the 140-metre-high Jet d'Eau fountain. Narrow streets wriggle up to the Old Town, where St-Pierre Cathedral offers knockout views across Lake Geneva to snow-capped Mont Blanc. Admire contemporary art in Plainpalais factory-turned-galley MAMCO. On the Right Bank, explore the UN monolith Palais des Nations before relaxing on Bain des Pâquis pier. Most museums open Tuesday to Sunday 10am-5pm.
