After walking across the Mont Blanc Bridge or the Pont des Bergues, the imposing Molard Tower marks the beginning of the old city. It is wonderfully preserved and it overshadows a number of pricey restaurants and cafes.

This is just next to the main street so easy to see, very pretty little clock tower. Can get busy in high season.

I think it is clear. Geneva does not offer so many interesting places of culture and art like Paris, London or Rome. Every quite old thing that you can "meet" during a walk, it becames a " must to see". The Molard Tower is a cute old Tower with a nice clock and a classical architecture.

An interesting old Tower with clock and a square open space in front ideal for passing the time of day.

It is something you pass by on the way to something else, hardly a tourist attraction, surrounded by new build and shops
