...A strategic site, on the shores of the lake and the foot of a now regional park, the Parc Naturel Régional Jura Vaudois.
The Romans settled Nyon early on – as can be seen from the remnants of the forum and amphitheatre. Nyon’s Roman Museum frequently unveils new discoveries from the digs carried out in the city. City centre building work is often stopped to give the archaeologists time to work. Since those times, Nyon has continued to grow to become the city we know today. From historical sites to preserved nature, the city is a perfect balance of old and new, natural and man-made for tourists in any season.
Culture plays a major role in the city. Museums and entertainment punctuate the lives of Nyon’s residents. There is the Museum of Lake Geneva, the open-door Journée des Arts (Art Day), theatres like the Usine à Gaz – an old gasworks factory – along with festivals dotted throughout the year. Among those festivals, we would be remiss not to mention the Paleo Festival, the International Festival of Archaeological Films, Visions du Réel (a documentary film festival), the Caribana Festival and the music festival Rive Jazzy.
Perched overlooking the lake and old quarter is the 13th-century Nyon Castle with its distinctive white turrets, which now houses the city’s porcelain museum. Finally, there are the unusual sites of Nyon and its surrounding lands:
