A seriously stylish city that's bursting with culinary and cultural delights...
When the Lausanne Tourist Board invited me to experience the pleasures of Lausanne first-hand, I jumped at the chance, despite being fully aware of how chilly Switzerland would be in November! Now, I'll be honest, before I'd visited I knew very little about Lausanne, so it was definitely an eye opening experience to learn what a wonderful city it was as well as experience the sheer abundance of things to see and do there.
Despite Lausanne being the second largest city on Lake Geneva (after Geneva), with 130,000 residents, it retains its small town charm, which is evidenced by its friendly locals. The city is built on three hills, which our host informed us is what gives the ladies of Lausanne the 'best legs in Switzerland'. Resting on the shores of Lake Geneva and surrounded by vineyard-covered slopes and the majestic Alps, visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to capturing envy-inducing holiday photos.
