Lausanne

The world's best small city?

3
out of 5

While it may be small compared to other Swiss metropolises, it punches well above its weight when it comes to culture, entertainment and natural beauty. Situated on the shores of Lake Geneva and framed by the snow-capped Alps, Lausanne is a city that beguiles and charms. The pedestrianised old town is home to twisting streets, grand churches and a lively cultural scene, while the lakeside promenades are perfect for a relaxed stroll or a spot of people watching.
