Anything that dates to the times of the Romans has history. This place backs up to some of the most important places of The Reformation, some of the most important centers of learning in Europe, and some of the most important determinations of law in the land. And they have ice cream, chocolate, wine and restaurants.

The few bars and restaurant around this place are pretty expensive, but its charm is really worth a stop. You feel like you have jumped into the past century and appreciate the calm of the old town. Ideal for a walk, a romantic stop or a family adventurous promenade.

When the weather's nice, Place Bourg du Four is an excellent place for people watching. There are at least three cafés that put tables out on the square. You can have a drink, eat a crepe or a sandwich and just enjoy the atmosphere of Geneva's Old Town.

Really pretty square in a pretty part of town. There are some really expensive restaurants in the square; but all of Geneva is really expensive. The square is close to St. Pierre cathedral and another 100m from the Museum of Art History.

Feels more like real Geneva, situated in the Old Town, close to the Cathedral - always a good idea to have a coffee and people watch here!

A must go place in Geneva to have walk around and have a drink in the old city. Probably the best square in Geneva.

This is a really charming spot in the old town. I loved the Rosti and the omelettes. The decor is authentic and the prices are reasonable. Definitely gets a big yes from me!
