La Via Romana

The canton of Vaud has many sites dating from the Roman period, thanks to the ViaRomana all the main sites can be easily visited from the gates of Geneva to Avenches.

Thanks to new excavations and research in this field, it is increasingly easy to separate the myth from reality. Following Roman roads that are real or assumed, the ViaRomana connects the most important Roman archaeological sites in Switzerland, making it possible to discover Roman culture in all its aspects. Nyon, the former colony founded by Julius Caesar, Lausanne-Vidy, the main merchant port on Lake Geneva, Orbe and its superb mosaics, the castrum of Yverdon and, of course, Avenches the capital of Roman Helvetia are on the programme of a week rich in history and discovery.
