As I was planning for things to do on my resent stop-over in Geneva for a day, I can across the Archeological Site at St. Pierre's Cathedral on TA. You have to actually visit to understand the great lengths that have gone into creating this historical experience. The entrance to the site is just to the right of the entrance to the cathedral (which I missed when I visited 3 years ago). Upon going down stairs to enter, you arrive at a reception area where you pay the fee to get in. Temperatures with-in the site seem to very greatly. I wish I had left my coat at the rack provided in the reception area. An audio guide is provided as part of the cost of admission. I did find it odd that I had to ask for the audio guide as it was not automatically offered to me. The other thing you have to pay attention to is the location of the stations associated with each stop on the audio guide. In my mind, the stations are poorly marked. I missed a few of the early ones because the station numbers were marked on the walkway barrier in the shadows below informational signs. Despite my struggles with the audio guide, the exhibit was extremely interesting. Considering you are literally walking through centuries of history, the over-all layout of the site is well organized. I would recommend this visit to anyone who has any interest in things historical.
