Geneva Old Town

The cultural and commercial centre of Geneva with many amazing spots and views

by Carla Projansky

With high-end shopping, fashionable restaurants, art galleries, upscale cafés, and busy squares resonating with the city’s past, taking a stroll through Geneva’s celebrated old town is a pure delight. Wind your way through these labyrinthine streets, soak in the history and atmosphere of international Geneva. Not to be missed: the history and architecture and stunning views at St. Peter’s Cathedral, the medieval Maison Tavel, and the lovely Bourg-du-four Square, which was once a Roman market.
