Posted on 11 May 2019 (0)

Lausanne is on the northern shore of Lake Geneva. The two gorges river cutting through the city and this combines with the steep rise from the shore of the lake. Truly, the city is filled with natural beauty. There are plenty of things that you can do and see here. When you visit Lausanne, here are a few things that you can do.

Lausanne Cathedral

The only cathedral of the city is the Lausanne Cathedral. It was established during the 13th century. Viollet-le-Duc is the one who had designed the present architecture of the cathedral. I came to learn that this was his last big project before he passed away. This cathedral is a sight to marvel.

Ouchy Promenade

Take a walk on the long walkaway present just beside Lake Geneva. This is the best place if you want to spend some quiet time. I visited this place based on a recommendation from an old friend in North Carolina, Sheila, who runs allspotless4u.com. She was right that I just visit and I had a great time. I found a couple and families strolling around. Carry a book, sit down a bench, and just relax. Make sure you position yourself on the lakefront to get the best view.

Place De La Palud

It is a wedged-shaped pedestrian square located just at the heart of the city. The place is dominated by old apartment-like buildings and City Hall. The arcade of the building at the ground floor continues through to this Place de la Louve. Fontaine de la Justice is on the eastern side of the square. The panoramic view of the city from here is just great.

Tour De Sauvabelin

 

The loftiest point of the city is to be found in Sauvabelin. This is actually a viewing tower that is made of wood. It had been constructed in the year 2003. Climbing 151 steps to reach the top is just worth it. From the top, you will be able to view the Alps, Lake Geneva, French Alps, the Vaud Alps, and cityscape, too.

It is the most commercialized city around Peru. And even though this city is covered in modernization, it still has hints of historical and ancient architectures. The city is very lively and every morning you can see working people just rushing down the streets to get where they need to be. There are many restaurants and bars here, and down the same street lanes, you can find various bookshops and shopping stores. This place has it all. You will find various attractions for kids and entertainment for the whole family. And if you are visiting without kids, then the nightlife here is going to blow your minds. From exquisite bars to exotic mocktails made right in front of you. A must visit the place.

La Cãbana

La Cabana by far is the most popular restaurant when it comes to Peru. And I will completely agree the food here is just sublime. The flavors from the chef are like a dance celebration on your taste buds. Every mouthful is sinful. And not just the food, but the chef himself has an intriguing back story about how it all started. The man once collected every majestic and unique thing he could, including some very rare and exotic fruits and flavors and machines and very old equipment’s. For himself, he put everything to use and started creating food with those. Once who started on the roadside is now the very successful franchise owner of La Cabana.

Ano Nuévo

This refers to the festivities that take place while celebrating the New Year. The celebrations here are marked by drinks and street foods and costume parties. The costume parties on New Years here are slightly different and unusual to what I have seen around. They put on clothes like old people and wear these big noses and start dancing around the streets over their folk songs, this for them is a way of remembering their elderly. They do mischievous activities and dance around. If you’re visiting around new years, you must attend this.

Lucerne is one of the most happening places that I came across in Switzerland. There are a plethora of things to do here. Starting from nature to the museum, you will find it all. It is one of the most spectacular tours that I had. In case you are traveling to Lucerne anytime soon, here are a few things that you need to check out.

Mount Pilatus

Visiting Lucerne and not being mesmerized by Mount Pilatus is something that it never going to happen. It has the nickname of Dragon Mountain. This was after a medieval legend claimed that the mountain is inhabited by a dragon that has healing powers. I climbed up to the top to check out the panoramic view. I have to say that it is breathtaking.

Old Town

Want to get a glimpse of the historic core of the city? Visit the bank of Reuss. You will find tall painted houses and shopping streets linked by cobblestones. The entire old center is free of traffic. Walk around the street and visit the shops. H

Lake Lucerne

Lake Lucerne is the most beautiful thing that I saw in this country, surrounded by mountains on all sides. I availed the paddle steamers to cruise on the lake. The waterside neighborhood of the lake had been configured in 1800 for taking advantage of the landscape.

Chapel Bridge

Crossing Reuss, I found this oldest truss bridge in existing. This is also the emblem of Lucerne. This 14th-century bridge runs for 200 meters. The ceiling of the bridge consists of paintings from the 17th century and depicts events from the history of Lucerne. Most of the bridge had been destroyed in 1993. This is a sight that you should not miss out on. I found a souvenir shop on the ground floor when I bought some items for my loved ones.

Being at Lisbon, missing out on this attraction would have been a mistake. The architecture of the building is truly unique. It stands over the mouth of the river Tagus. It is an iconic feature of the city. As a matter of fact, it might have been the last sight that Vasco da Gama would have noticed while he ventured out in the Atlantic Ocean.

Ride Tram 28

Just like the United States and San Francisco, this city is also popular for the historic tram lines. Tram 28 is iconic which makes its way through the cobbled streets of the city into old Alfama district for decades now. Our journey in the tram started from Graca’s palm-spotted hills and comes to an end beneath the Estrela Basilica’s beautiful dome. I discovered several-year-old history while you pass through the magical castles and palaces along the route.

Tour Alfama District

Alfama District is the oldest part of this city. It dates back to Moors of Africa. The alleys and the winding street forming the district are surely worth a tour. While you stroll, you can take a look at the great cathedrals. The most beautiful one that I came across is the Lisbon Cathedral.

Take a Trip Sintra

This city is only a half an hour drive from Lisbon. I took a day trip. However, if you want, you can also spend one or two in here. It is placed high up among the Mountains of the Moon.
