What to Do in Geneva During the Day

CAROUGE

The peaceful suburban town of Carouge is well known for its artisans who sell their wares at the Place du Marché and in the adjoining side streets.

Carouge has been a settlement since the Middle Ages, however the current town only sprang into existence in 1786. Separated by the river Arve from Geneva City, this little patch of town brings a young crowd to its curb, attracted by the laidback atmosphere and the private retreats of hidden courtyard gardens. Though the nightlife cannot compete with Geneva, Carouge’s subtle mix of Turin and Mediterranean-influenced architecture, old cafes, artists’ workshops and warm welcome means it is a great day out.
