The circuit also crosses Lausanne and its immediate surroundings: hugging the shoreline of Lake Geneva, it crosses the Lavaux vineyard (a UNESCO World Heritage site) and passes in front of the Olympic Museum before arriving on the campus of the Lausanne Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) with its architectural gems. Needless to say, a detour through the old town is highly recommended!
