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.

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.

Like most places in Genva, place Bourg de Four is at its best in the summer. Lots of sunshine, freelance musicians playing, good food and drinks...
