As soon as you arrive, you will be treated to a breathtaking panorama: built on three hills in a setting of vineyards and with Lake Geneva at its feet, Lausanne, a city located in Switzerland, has all the know-how of a picturesque setting. If we enter its walls, we discover the Olympic capital from another but equally amazing angle: gardens or pleasant neighborhoods like Ouchy, one of Lausanne's favourite walks along the flowery quays and the lake. Not to mention the Place de la Palud, a central part of the city where the oldest fountain is located. If you choose a moment dedicated to culture, head to Plate 10, the new arts district. For an unforgettable moment of discovery, it is possible to visit the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, where many exhibitions are presented.
