The old town atmosphere is the best part of this place. Some part you have to climb up and it was quite tiring.
However, for those who have not encountered much of old European architecture, this place sets a good example.

The area has some lovely shops to see and some interesting restaurants, however everything is closed on Sunday! The area is not as glamorous as near by Geneva but it is definitely worth a visit when in Lausanne.

Due our itinerary we reached Lausanne at Sunday. It was a big mistake!! Everything was closed included museum, attractions and restaurants. It was like a ghost town. Just a few people on the streets. It had the impression those tourists are lost in this 3D city. We did not see even the transport around town. Instead of the planned full day we spent only half time because it was so boring. We found only one restaurant that is open 24 hours, and left the city to continue our trip to another point of our itinerary. Not too much to see inside the center of old town especially if everything is closed. So my recommendation - void to visit this city in Sunday.

One of the oldest streets in town with some fashion boutiques, restaurants, arcades, market stalls on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. The flower stall at the bottom on the right specializes in roses, and other flowers in unusual colours. Look above the shop windows for interesting details. On the right, going up: the old windows of the posh Bon Génie départment store, with attractive Belle-Epoque lettering. On the left, Ladurée for macaroons and twinkling chandeliers, and then Blondel chocolates, there since 1850 (very narrow inside). Unfortunately the beautiful and old music shop opposite, Foetisch, with its creaky wooden stairs, has closed down. The first passage on the left takes you to a good fabric shop, and at the end, a tea-room with books, home-made food and friendly owners, and a great view of the cathedral (Le Délice). Right-hand side, the Passage St-François has a beautiful trompe-l'oeil tiled floor in green, grey and black marble. A passage on the right, next to the Swarovski boutique, leads to Cardas boutique, full of exotic furniture, jewellery, fabrics, etc. behind a sculpted metal door; it has a "stepping-stone" floor of wood and gravel. Another narrow passage on the left (ruelle de Bourg) takes you into the restored Rôtillon district (for those who want to take colourful photos). Even further on the left, above the big drugstore, see the superb old façade. Many of the boutiques have vaulted stone cellars so it's worth going inside to browse, Near the top, on the right, next to the small Manuel chocolate shop, a dark corridor leads to Lausanne's oldest pizzeria, chez Mario, for authentic pizze cooked in a wood-fired oven. On this part of the street there's also what the Swiss call a "MacDo", and then Churrasco which has an excellent reputation for tender and tasty steaks. And on the right-hand side a well-known tobacco shop with a plaque on the wall telling you that Georges Simenon, author of the Maigret novels, bought his smoking supplies here.

A brightly painted statue and a wonderful clockwork movement to observe on the hour- draws a crowd. Not unlike the Glokkenspiel in Munchen, Germany

Rue du Bourg is as 5th av in NY but 100x shorter and 100x less crowded... even if in Saturday's it could be some how crowded... Street to shop, to drink a coffee or the eat a lunch, everything is possible.
Don't miss Place St.-François and all the surrounding and enjoy Lausanne.
