If you head from the Place de Longemalle away from the lake, you cross the tram lines and find yourself in the Place de la Madeleine, the northern gateway into the old town. There’s an old church (the Temple de la Madeleine, one of the oldest in Geneva with some impressive modern stained glass) and even a nice carousel (not seen in either of the pictures here, but just visible in the background in the top picture in the preceding post).

The picture above shows the “Taverne de la Madeleine“, a great place to eat (we’ve eaten there many times). The food is good, but unfortunately (at least for me) they haven’t served alcohol since 1920. As the sign on the side wall proclaims: “Restaurant sans Alcool”. If you really feel the need for a beer of a glass of wine there are lots of other places that do serve alcohol including the “Le Flore” seen in the picture below with the Rue de la Fontaine ascending towards the old town.
