F and I took a bus to Rive and decided to go in search of a café with wifi (pronounced wee-fee in French). We made our way up and into the Old Town, past the street where John Calvin once lived (Rue de Calvin), past St. Peter’s Cathedral, and past a cute little café that had great outdoor seating but did not accept credit cards (c’est dommage!) until we reached the Musée d’art et d’histoire. We decided to give it a shot and in exchange for having a delicious lunch and drinks, we were granted access to functional wifi.
The Musée d’art et d’histoire is housed in a really gorgeous building. Here’s the terrace next to the restaurant:
Just in front of the museum is the Parc de l’Observatoire, too – a small little park with a cool view of the western side of Eaux-Vives. The best about this little piece of Geneva is that the chances of running into someone you know are next to none (that’s rare).
