Lausanne to Geneva (Lakeside)

Along Lake Geneva  (Some groups will continue on to Geneva for overnight; others will take this route on the way to Geneva Airport.) The mountains to your right are the southern tip of the Swiss Jura — the greatest mountain chain in this part of Switzerland. Romantic poets regularly visited the lake in the 18th-19th centuries, including Byron, Shelley, and his wife. Frankenstein was written here.

There are vineyards around Morges (watch for road signs), and fine views of the lake. At Fechy, you're near the Signal de Bougy (right), at 2300 feet, a major peak. The town of Nyon (left) was a Roman port, called Noviodunum, founded by Julius Caesar. Here, couriers (not passports couriers!) started for points all over Helvetia, bearing Caesar's orders. Roman remains still stand in Nyon. (After the signs for Coppet, begin your introduction to Geneva.)
