Contrary to popular belief, not everything has a price in Geneva. Yes, it is still possible to be entertained for free – and even by the same high quality standards as with a paid ticket or entry fee. And the setting is beautiful, in Parc de la Grange in Eaux-Vives, not far from Baby Plage, hidden away in a clearing surrounded by trees.
