Charming place for a stroll weekdays or weekends. Many small shops and artisans. And a lot of good restaurants and places for a drink. Best on a sunny days to sit on the terraces

Escape the hustle of central Geneva and eat out after a stroll around the quiet village square of Carouge. There is a wide choice of bars and restaurants, small clothes and craft shops.

This is at the other side of Geneva. But, it is very easy to rach by public transportation. Only about ten minutes. Very nice small cafes, small shops of hand crafts, souvenirs, clothes etc.
