Swiss San Francisco
Lausanne contains several distinct neighborhoods, each offering a different side of the French-speaking Swiss town. The city, well-known for its thriving arts scene, features a large range of museums centered on varied (and sometimes obscure) themes. Lausanne also attracts a large number of visitors to the water activities that thrive thanks to its location on Lake Geneva. Ville Marché, Lausanne's old town area, features outdoor markets, while Cité is home to many of the city's historical buildings. Ouchy, once a lakeside village, provides a place to walk along the water, and Flon is a former industrial area-turned-trendy-urban-strip filled with hip boutiques, restaurants, and art galleries. Lausanne is in Canton of Vaud. Plan your tour of Lausanne and Switzerland travel itinerary using our Switzerland trip builder website .
