Geneva’s Old Town is a maze of fascinating streets where I not only regularly get lost, but also often lose myself for a few hours.
It not a fascinating step back in time, but also offers a great selection of art galleries, restaurants, bars and quaint and interesting shops.
On Saturday, 28 September, the Art en Vieux-Ville, (AVV) – hosts one of their quarterly open days during which around 15 art galleries and 3 cultural institutions in this part of the city invite the public to visit the galleries for extended hours between 11h and 17h. MORE INFO HERE.
This is a perfect opportunity to explore this part of Geneva again, or if you’re a tourist – for the first time!
There is one street I always return to – the Rue Verdaine. Not least because this I where you can find the tastiest poké bowl and caramel cake slice in the Old Town, but also because I love popping into the quirky shops and chatting to the local shop owners.
