“very cool!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2012

gorgeous area, the st. francois church in the middle is gorgeous, it's also central. check out "blondels" chocolates - one of the best in lausanne. or, if you're feeling unoriginal, theres a starbucks there too. (one of the only two in lausanne!)

“Edward Gibbon's house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2012

The house where Edward Gibbon lived for many years, and where he completed his Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, once stood in Place Saint Francois, where the post office stands now. There's a commemorative plaque on the corner of the building.

“Its a place...nothing more”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012

Its a place in Lausanne with church....thats it. At night time the 'entertainment' is getting less and more risky since some strange character always stroll in this area. Nothing to see.

“Great place in Lausanne”

With its St. François church, a nice place with Starbuck coffee and many shops. There is a bus stop where many buses transit.
