Such a nice place to go on a sunny Saturday! It’s very special and not Swiss at all... Full of nice little shops, bars and restaurants, walk around without any plan to feel the great Carouge Atmosphere.

We went on the International Geneva walking tour with Sacha. He made the tour so much fun, and was so knowledgeable about all the sites, the history. He has such a happy and optimistic view of the world. It was such a fantastic way to experience Geneva. We highly recommend it!

We caught the tram down to Vieux-Carouge after being recommended by a friend. We really enjoyed the beautiful architecture, the coloured buildings and stylish boutiques. It was also a market day so we tried a beautiful selection of cheeses and cheese and fetta pastries, cooked to order from a side stall. Great food by locals that have obviously been providing street food for many years! Nice and friendly people all around in a really relaxed outdoor street cafe vibe. Would be a shame to come to Geneva and miss this gem

What shall I tell you about the old town of Carouge? I chose to live here, I so much like its atmosphere. The best time to visit it is a Saturday night, between noon and midnight. You kick-off with a lunch at the Marché, then spend some time visiting the market, sit and taste the local wine so you understand why no one ever heard of Geneva wines. Still, they are fit for the purpose, go for it! Walking around the streets won’t take much time, unfortunately, the site is rather small, but sooo many great tiny shops! Do not miss the ice creams, try the local chocolates, cakes! The evenings are dominated by the bars, a few night clubs, great places to chill... enjoy!

Old Carouge is as different of old Geneva that a latin and german town could be and this just a few tram stops apart. Although the place has been colonized by the wealthy and shops have developed in accordance there is still much to enjoy strolling in this sort of village. Very pleasant, under the sun. Guided tours allowing access to some hidden buildings could be an interesting option.
