  • Picturesque square with fountain, surrounded with cafe's ,restaurants and bars in the old town of Geneva. Perfect to stop off, have a coffee and people watch.
  • Crowds even in Friday night. Had it's beauty. Recommend to visit.
  • A small square. Not too impressive, but can imagine should be romantic here in the night.
  • Lots of nice restaurants. Good shopping. Place to meet and visit the church.
  • Great place with several cafeterias, very nice to chill during the day and night.
