Lovely Nyon, with its waterfront drive, shops, museums, and a castle dominating its cliff-top Old Town, was founded by Julius Caesar around 45 BC as a camp for war veterans. Lovely views can be had from the château-museum's terrace and the town's waterfront promenade, where boats and swans bob in the waves.
