Lausanne has the attractions of a metropolis, but without the size.
And this is just what makes strolling around such a pleasure. You can walk without getting weary, and still have 1,500 shops to choose from. The pedestrian area, for example, with the Place de la Palud and the Rue de Bourg, has some particularly charming boutiques. Pick up delicious regional specialities at La Ferme Vaudoise.
