This square is easily accessible once you have crossed the park from the Place Neuve. It retains a charming sense of old Geneva - charming shops, bars and restaurants. Also so close to the cathedral and the museum of the Reformation.

A short walk from St Pierre Cathedral, this attractive square in the Old Town is lined with appealing bars and cafes with terraces. There are also benches to sit and enjoy people watching.

Not only is it an important intersection it also leads up to rue de l`hotel de ville and the cathedral st pierre. It is worth purchasing a guidebook for the old town because there are so many old and interesting places to be seen.

This is one of the best-known public squares in old Geneva. Plenty of restaurants nearby help generate steady crowds throughout the day. It’s a nice place to walk through on your way to another place in the old city, but there isn’t all that much...More

Whilst exploring Geneva, we were very pleased with the Old Town. It was our favourite place, alongside the lake. Here you can find water fountains, an array of coffee houses and restaurants, quirky little buildings and a wealth of history. Well worth a visit, allow...More
