Nyon Travel Guide: 30 reviews and 108 photos

A small medieval town

It is about 30 minutes' drive from geneva and 15 minutes by train.
Its a beautiful town and I have some friends in this town. It is always pleasant and enjoyable to talk to them on Saturdays and Sundays and visit together some nice places nearby.

A view from Nyon castle

Its beautiful. You must visit here. The view from the castle is superb. Even in summer, it is relatively calm. There are several nice cafes and restaurants. It is pleasant in summer to sit in the terrace of cafe and read a newspaper or talk to your friends.

Boat to France

You can go to the French side of the Lake leman (Evian, Yvoire, etc) in 30 minutes by a boat like this. Its an excellent day trip to visit these villages.

    Unfortunately, the weather wasn't too nice when we visited there recently. But the castle is cute. No view of France though because of the fog.
