It seems to us that Montreux & Vevey are kind of twin-towns – both look like rising from the water of Lake Geneva, both were settled in Roman times, both of a similar population (one a bit more than 20,000 inhabitants, the other a bit less than that), both, apart, earned the nickname of "Pearl of Swiss Riviera", even if you want to bye a map of one – you'll get the map of both, because the maps are printed on the same sheet.
Vevey, the smaller, is often neglected by visitors in favour of the larger, Montreux, but undeservedly – it is a chic little resort of quiet charm, with much to offer to its visitors.
Vevey's most famous former citizen was Charlie Chaplin, who spent the latter part of his life here, marrying and raising a family in a tiny village just outside the town.
If we had had to pick one of the "twins" – it would have been Vevey.
