Carouge. Welcome somewhere else!

Relaxation and pleasure, that’s the promise of the Sardinian city where life is good this summer. Why not vacation in Carouge?!

The Sardinian city has some great attractions to offer to its inhabitants as well as to Genevans who come to savour its numerous pleasures. To highlight its know-how and its neighbourhood stores, the City of Carouge has created a campaign entitled ’’Bienvenue ailleurs’’ (Welcome somewhere else). And for the more adventurous, two life-size treasure hunts offered by Urban Events are to be discovered between friends or ‘en famille’.

 

CAROUGE, A pleasure DESTINATION

Promoting Carouge and its economic structure as a local destination for pleasure and relaxation – that’s the goal of the city’s new campaign. With its signature Carouge, bienvenue ailleurs (Carouge, welcome somewhere else) the campaign portrays Carouge as a real change of scenery not far from home.  With its 287 stores, its138 bistro terraces in summer, a market three times a week, a monthly flea market, a cinema, and an Olympic-size swimming pool, Carouge has what it takes to make you travel. The change of scenery is guaranteed.

 

TREASURE HUNTS

Apart from the traditional guided tours - 14 rendezvous throughout the summer, a treasure hunt to be discovered among friends or ‘en famille’ awaits the more adventurous. On the theme of tasting, URBAN EVENTS offers a unique and original game called Vin-Tage, which mixes enigmas, challenges and blind tasting of local wines. This activity is intended to encourage people to discover the city’s historical and cultural aspects by promoting local restaurants and products in a spirit of teamwork. A family version of the treasure hunt has been specially developed for Carouge, an ice cream tasting session. The adult game lasts three hours, and the family version about one hour. Subsidised by the City of Carouge, the price of the game is CHF 25 instead of CHF 52 until 31 August. And for the family version the price is CHF 10 per person.
