Greenwich Village Overview

Well known as the ‘Greenwich Village of Geneva’, the lovely old town of Carouge is lauded for its striking blend of French-Italian architectural style. It is one of the most culturally rich places to see in Geneva.

Sitting quietly behind the river Arve, Carouge is a small town, easily overlooked by travellers. This offbeat location brings you an exciting twist of culture. Carouge provides an authentic and off-the-beaten-path experience, making it a captivating addition to your Switzerland tours, where every corner whispers a unique tale.


Also referred to by the locals as “Little Italy”, Carouge is a perfect respite from the ultra-modern streets of Geneva. Its unique architecture is home to a plethora of little cafés, bistros, cobbled streets, and cosy boutiques.

While you may not find the famous cafés and restaurant chains here, the local wonders like Chat Noir, Rue Vautier, and Bar du Nord promise to leave you asking for more!
