A bohemian community, full of artists and street stalls of all kinds, just 3 kilometres away from central Geneva!
In only 20 minutes the 27 bus line will take you the three kilometres from the Cornavin station to this community bathed by the river Arve. Carouge, choked-full of booksellers, antiquities, glass blowers, watchmakers, clothing designers, hatters and restaurants, reflects the good Swiss life. Created during Illustration times, during the day it attracts artists in search for the perfect place to admire the Baroque buildings, not unlike those in the city of Turin. Its narrow alleys host cultural activities all year round, second hand collections, jumble sales where real antiquities can be found or a clay modelling contest are some of the fixed features that shouldn't be missed in this picturesque village. After a long day wandering about, relax under the canopy of its leafy squares, enjoying its many and beautiful fountains and gardens. Find all the information you need at www.carouge.ch.
