The Old Town of Geneva, not a place to be left out while visiting Geneva. The city square is the Place du Bourg-de-Four. This historical part of the Geneva is well known for its ambiance, architecture, restaurants, fountains and last but not the least high-end...More

It was sad that it rained all the day and it was rather cold. Only few visitors. All shops were closed. Hard to image what kind of Place it is in summer.

This is a little sandwich shop, a bit out of the way, in old town Geneva. The sandwiches were great, and the chocolate cake (morceau du gateau chocolat) was fantastic. Prices were extremely reasonable for Geneva too. Great place for a late lunch.

We stayed in the Old Town area and walked up the hill to look at the Cathedral and find somewhere unique for Lunch and came upon the Place Bourg with a great Bar and some good restaurants adjoining and worth the visit.

This quaint little square in Geneva's Old Town is a nice spot to take a break from your sight seeing. It has a very relaxed feel. There's quite a number of cafes and restaurants to grab a bite to eat. One of the better Swiss...More

This may be the place to be the other seasons but in winter I didn't even realized it was an attraction. The entire neighborhood is picturesque and I wandered streets enjoying the sights but I didn't find this square any more or less appealing than...More

It's beautiful, sat here and had a coffee to enjoy, there was some sort of fair going on and managed to buy some knickknacks to take back home.
