Lausanne is located in the heart of the French-speaking area of western Switzerland along the shores of majestic Lake Geneva. Founded originally by the Romans, the city boasts of a long history and offers visitors today a rich cultural life. Lausanne has a perfect blend of options for the urban dweller (restaurants, shops, and entertainment), but also appeals to outdoor enthusiasts (swimming, hiking, biking, and skiing) who love the rugged adventure that the Swiss Alps provide.
Its central location in Europe allows for easy train access to all the major cities of Europe: it is only 40 minutes from the Geneva airport, four hours from Paris by the high-speed train, and one hour from the best ski slopes in the Alps!
