The Place du Molard is also well worth a visit. In the heart of Geneva's left bank, surrounded by a rich array of department stores, luxury boutiques and restaurants, it has a lovely octagonal fountain with a marble obelisk dating from 1771, and an impressive tower which was originally part of the city's defensive wall.
Rue du Rhone
Stepping straight from the front door onto the broad lakeside promenade you are only ten minutes' easy stroll from the buzzing cosmopolitan elegance of Rue du Rhone, a broad street lined with Geneva's most impressive boutiques and stores. These include Louis Vuitton, Dior, Chanel, Valentino, Versace, Gucci and Montblanc, to name but a few. There are also the world's finest jewellers and watch makers, such as Patek Philippe, Blancpain, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Boucheron, Chopard and Fabergé.
