Nyon : Michelin's recommendations
A pleasant little town ranged over a spot overlooking Lake Geneva, Nyon jealously cultivates the memory of its Latin past, having been founded by Julius Caesar as the town of Colonia Julia Equestris. The 16C Bern occupation is recalled by the chateau and its arcaded houses on the market square. The Paleo Festival takes place in July, bringing together musics from all five continents.
