Zurich has many secret lanes and stores, try to book a guide for a couple of hours and they can bring the city to life and show you the secrects.

I walked around the area around 8 pm on a Sunday night and it was kinda empty. Restaurants were open, but they are expensive compared to Italy.

Very enjoyable to wander in, and see the lights of the Christmas decorations reflected in the water.

The old town is a pleasant stroll with some hills, the river provides picturesque views, But in the end it is just an expensive shopping area.

The old town of Zürich is just beautiful. Visitors usually appreciate a lot the city's charm. I suggest to show them this beautiful site of Zürich in summer and spring time to enjoy outdoor cafés and wander around from one shop to the other.
