If you're looking for things to do in Geneva, remember that you can do more than just shop for chocolate and watches there. Don't miss St Pierre Cathedral and the archeological remains beneath it, which reveal the city's rich history and provide a glimpse into the origins of Christianity in this part of Europe. If you need some fresh air, head to Jardin Anglais, an urban green space filled with iconic monuments. Those looking to step out of town can visit Chillon Castle, where a view of Lake Geneva comes with a chance to take a step back in time and see one of the city's most visited historic monuments.
