Fodor's Review

One of the most notable ancient Roman settlements of Switzerland's "Roman era" is Aventicum, which dates from 58 BC to AD 400. In the famous Musée et Théâtre Romain (Roman Museum and Theater), you can still see the remains of an ancient Roman forum, a bathhouse, and an amphitheater where bloodthirsty spectators once watched the games. The collection of Roman antiquities at the town museum is noteworthy, particularly the gold bust of emperor Marcus Aurelius. To get here from Murten, head 8 km (5 miles) southwest to Avenches.
