Musée Romain de Lausanne–Vidy (Lausanne-Vidy Roman Museum)
Musée Romain de Lausanne–Vidy (Lausanne-Vidy Roman Museum) Review
Two Roman communities, Lousonna and Vidy, flourished near the lakefront from 15 BC into the 4th century; excavations of their ruins have brought these ancient settlements to light. A reconstructed private home serves as the museum's headquarters, where displays include a small trove of coins, votive figures, mosaics, and objects from daily life—carved combs, toga pins, jewelry. On request, you can get guided tours in English of the museum and the vast archaeological sites. The museum is west of Ouchy, just off the Lausanne-Maladière exit from E25/A1. Bus Nos. 1 and 2 stop at Maladière, No. 25 stops at Bois-de-Vaux.
