The chapel of the Maccabees is incredible - Don't miss it, as it's tucked away at the back. The decor has been fully restored too. The lighting inside the Cathedral is very dark, which makes it very mesmerising. The windows don't let in much light - which a little bit similar to Notre Dame. Have a walk around the outside...

The cathedral itself is wonderful especially the stained glass on the windows. The bell towers offer spectacular views of the whole city.

Pop in to see this beautifully designed church - I was so lucky to find the small choir and orchestra rehearsing and it was wonderful.

This is a lovely spot to visit and easy to reach . So whilst taking a walk around the old city pop past the cathedral . It's interior is serene and you can admire the intricate stained glass windows and the beautiful carvings . And if you have the energy walk up the stairs to get the view of the... More

We didn't have a great deal of time so just admired this cathedral from some of the areas outside. It's a thirteenth century building which has been added too over many centuries and currently belongs to the Reformed Protestant Church of Geneva. It is a wonderful structure which stands above the city and can be seen from many a distance.

Beautiful Cathedral with awesome views from the top! The ticket is somewhat expensive, but you might form an ad-hoc group, just to make it a better deal. Absolute worth to visit!

Without a doubt, pay the small fee and do the tower tour. It's a steep walk up but the views are amazing and worth ever step. Breathtaking views of Geneva.

We went into the cathedral and it is stunning and we have some of the best cathedrals in the world in my opinion in the UK. The view was lovely, the walk into the old time up the hill is a killer I will say. Very historical place.
