The medieval town centre of Lausanne is full of small alleys lined with boutiques, cafes and restaurants. At its centre sits the impressive Cathedral overlooking the town and Lake Geneva from its vantage point on top of a hill. Down at the bottom is the town’s port ‘Ouchy’ – a popular area with cafes and restaurants overlooking the quays. Excursions to nearby Geneva or Montreux can easily be done by boat or train.
