Take the tower tour for the best views of Geneva. It costs 5 francs for adults and 2 francs for children, you have to walk up winding stairs but it is worth the climb to see the views from the 2 towers. The cathedral itself...More

This beautiful old church offers some amazing architecture and views from a high point of downtown Geneva. The craftsmanship and history are amazing, and I would definitely consider this a high point of Geneva. Worthy of a 20-60 minute stop.

Beautiful and powerful evening spent worshipping and praying with people from around the globe. Set in a beautiful part of the city with wonderful views as you walk up the hill towards the cathedral. Lovely cathedral.

Very enjoyable cathedral with great historical roots- home to Calvin and his preaching. Make sure to see side chapel. A bit of a climb to the top of the hill, but well worth the visit.

Enjoyed a visit here as part of trying to find something to do when the entire lake was covered in fog for three days. This was some welcome relief. Nice interior / exterior - and good for a potter around. Lovely glass work and lighting.

This church was very well preserved and had a beautiful architecture. It is possible to climb one of the towers which we didn't do as not all of us were interested. A worthwhile visit.

Best place to visit in Geneva. The church is majestic especially the music playing all day long. Make sure to visit all part of the cathedrale and DO NOT FORGET to go up the tower and watch Geneva from above.
