Half a day excursion from Geneva to Lausanne by train

Lausanne is a picturesque city 60 km away from Geneva and is home to the International Olympic Committee headquarters, as well as the Olympic Museum. The town is built on three hills, surrounded by vineyard-covered slopes, with Lake Geneva at its feet and the splendid Savoy Alps on the opposite lakeshore. The hilly medieval old city with alleyways lined with cafes and boutiques has a unique charm. It is dominated by the cathedral, which is regarded as Switzerland's most impressive piece of early Gothic architecture.

A beatiful train ride from Geneva through small towns and villages with a splendid view of the lake and the Alps. From the train station we will walk at a leisurely pace through narrows streets of the Old Town, visit the Cathedral, stroll along the elegant rue de Bourg, an have some free time for shopping.

If you want to visit Geneva first and then go to Lausanne, we can make adjustments to the itinerary. Please contact me for details.



In Lausanne: Fountain of Justice, Town Hall, Palais de la Rumine, Cathedral, rue du Bourg, port of Ouchy, etc.
