  • It is not very easy to follow the path arranged for the visit, although the audioguide in Italian. Location still well kept and clean.

  • I can't tell you find that during the visit the Cathedral. Very cool ... I like, I love to visit. My 6 year old son was delighted to see everything. Very well organized and simple to follow. Super recommend.

  • Very well-designed exhibit, with interactive screens, short films, and information panels that are color-coded by century! However, I don't believe that it's worth 8.00 CHF for an adult ticket -- if you have a Geneva Museum Pass, however, and really enjoy archeological digs, definitely check out this wealth of information.
