Probably the best part of Geneva with a real old world charm. This small square is the real heart of old Geneva. A great place to sit and contemplate matters whilst sipping (very average) coffee and watching people prominade through the square. Very relaxing.

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.

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.
