Nyon — Roman pride

Nyon is famous of having the headquarters of FIFA, but recently there is nothing to be proud of in this topic. I decided to stop here for a while out of different reasons. Pretty castle with a widespread view over Lake Geneva definitely compensated steamy heat of that day. Moreover, here and there you encounter remains of Roman history of this town. Hardly visible if not for big info boards, a mural of a Roman basilica and statue of emperor August erected by the town council which is definitely very proud of such a history.
