The Carouge neighborhood was so charming! Architecture is unique, clean and well kept. Has another, maybe more provincial vibe, but still very charming and inviting. The market has produce from the local farmers and a wonderful cheese/ham stand. And the little bars and restaurants around...More

Charming place for a stroll weekdays or weekends. Many small shops and artisans. And a lot of good restaurants and places for a drink. Best on a sunny days to sit on the terraces

I could not find something really very interesting in this village. The ice cream in the gelateria in the main square is really very good.

This ancient Sardinian little village has become over time one of the most famous and must-go places in Geneva! If you haven't strolled along the Place du Marché in the center of Old Carouge, enjoying an ice-cream, you haven't finished your Geneva experience! The colourfull...More

Escape the hustle of central Geneva and eat out after a stroll around the quiet village square of Carouge. There is a wide choice of bars and restaurants, small clothes and craft shops.
