Saint-Pierre Cathedral : Geneva

I arrived at Geneva early morning and had half a day to explore around before work called, and so a quick search indicated that the best place to get a view of Geneva and the region from above was Saint-Pierre Cathedral. It’s high on the central old town hill, and has old stairs going up to the towers with terrific panoramic views in every direction.
