Nyon Tourism has recently added a new tour to its list of guided tours of the town and surrounding area. The “Gourmet Tour” aims to introduce visitors and newly arrived residents to locally produced food. The tour begins with a couple of “taster” stops at local businesses followed by a light meal with wine at a typical Vaudois restaurant.
The tour begins with an explanation by a tourist guide of the different varieties of fish that can be found in the lake and that can be consumed. This is then followed by a stop in a local butcher for a taste of dried meats and an explanation of the produce on offer, followed by a trip to the local cheesemonger with a tasting of a selection of local cheeses.
The trip then moves through the town with a short stop by the statue of Julius Caesar where you can hear about the kind of food that was eaten in Nyon during Roman times!
The end of the tour finishes in a local restaurant for a light meal and wine and a convivial atmosphere! The tour runs every Thursday at 18:00 during May, June and September, reservations necessary (two days in advance). The tour costs 38 CHF and last approximately two hours and can be conducted in French, English, German, Swiss German, Italian and Spanish.
This tour is one of many others that Nyon tourism has on its itinerary, others include “Julius Caesar in Nyon”, “In the Traces of Tin Tin” tour, and more.
