02Lausanne

French-speaking Lausanne is the second largest city on Lake Geneva, and it is also the gateway to some of the best skiing in Switzerland. The ideal spot to enjoy panoramic vistas of both the lake and the mountains is in front of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Old Town. If you tire of walking, take a helicopter for a birds-eye view of the Lavaux vineyards, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
