The cycle circuit connects the Roman museums of Vallon and Avenches for an excursion combining sport and culture.

Leaving from the museum in Vallon, standing on the very site of a former Gallo-Roman villa, it takes less than 45 minutes to reach the Roman museum in Avenches. Following small country lanes along the banks of the River Broye, this gentle route takes cyclists on a trip through the countryside and history.

Well worth a visit along the way is the Swiss national stud farm, with its educational trail. It is also home to western Switzerland’s largest nesting site for swans, counting more than 100 of these majestic birds. At the end of the route lies Avenches, a medieval town with its historical treasures and Roman museum.

 

Insider’s tip

Take a small detour to discover the IENA (National Equestrian Institute of Avenches), its restaurant, its paddocks and its numerous horse races.
