I was excited enough when we finally decided to visit the historical tourist destination in Switzerland – the Interlaken. Yet the more it got interesting when we stopped by these quaint yet equally eye-pleasing Swiss towns as well.
Morning stroll at Avenches
Before we officially left Vaud, we took our morning walk in a dainty, quiet town called Avenches. Formerly called Aventicum, it was the capital of Roman Helvetia founded by Emperor Augustus 2,000 years ago. A significantly-sized Roman amphitheatre in Avenche beams proudly as soon as you get into the town’s proper, thus speaking about the town’s unique heritage from the Roman era.
