Great Place!

This little place in the middle of Geneva is a really oasis. It is a relaxing small square in the middle of the city. You just got to love this place.

The old town is great fun. No cars allowed, so it is a walkers dream. Take your time because there are lots of shops and restaurants to visit along the way not to mention the people watching. Love to visit during early summer evenings when everyone is out and about and just enjoying the weather and the surroundings.

We ended up here a number of times - found some great cafes to enjoy a mid-morning or afternoon break.

The place, but all the old town is interesting, sloping and paved. Visited the old city by day, and go eat and have some drink in the pub and the neighborhood bar

The Place Bourg de Four (place means square) is a little jewel in the old town of Geneva. When the weather is nice (and this may mean also in winter) it is lovely to have a coffee at teh outside terraces of the several cafes.

It's a place crowded, full of tourists. It won't be cheap, but you should take a time to take a table in one of it's coffee shops and have a nice coffee while enjoy the people around talking in so many languages.

A little place at the beginning of the old town, plenty of cafés, bakery, restaurants around. A nice place when there is a bit of sun. Very lively and often has some events, music or others.

I've always like Place Bourg du Four but after a miserable winter, it it a fabulous place to sit in the October sun and drink a coffee (my visitors) or beer (my husband) or wine (me). A pleasant place to watch the world go by. The court house and police station are nearby as well as some great restaurants and... More
