Lot of shops and boutiques close by. When in Lausanne, that's where I start my shopping tour.

It's a rather small space for such a big city. It lacks a little charm, the cathedral is beautiful but they are so many things going on at the same time that you can't really see it. And they are not enough seats to just hang out.

This place is the center of Lausanne, also the best place to catch your bus conection to mostly anywhere in the city. Don't miss the nearby "pont de Bel Air", with stunning views of the cathedral. Pay a visit to St-François church inside, with a beautiful baroque organon. In december, there is a small Christmas Market on the place... Unfortunately, small is the only adjective for this market... Nothing really interesting.

You could spend an entire day at Place St.-Francois. There are all kinds of shops fitting all price ranges, so don't be intimidated by its beauty and location. Silly to say this, but you can only ware flats to survive the cobblestone streets...my hats off to you if you can ware a pair of heels.
