Cheap hotels in Les Eaux Vives, Geneva
On the south side of town, Eaux-Vives, considered Geneva's city center, is home to Jet d'Eau, Geneva's iconic water fountain. Shooting a high plume into the air, weather permitting, the fountain is easy to see from the lakefront. The area offers easy access to the cobbled Rue de la Cite where visitors can find Rousseau's birthplace. Up a steep hill tourists can visit Cathedrale St Pierre. The centuries-old church houses John Calvin's old pulpit.
