Fodor's Review

The remnants of a 1st-century Roman villa crown the hillside in this gracious, sun-dappled park, once the private grounds of an 18th-century villa overlooking the lake. William Favre's bequest of his family's domain to the city in 1917 stipulated that the park be made available to the public during the day and closed at night. It is still the only green space in Geneva to be locked when the sun goes down. More than 240 different types of roses share the exceptional rose

garden, where new varieties of roses compete for prizes each June. The Orangerie and the Théâtre de Verdure stage performances and open-air concerts through the summer months.
