I am a PhD student in the UK and will be visiting Lausanne to meet my second supervisor who is a professor at EPFL. My trip will be two weeks long 1 July - 15 July. I will be spending most of the time at a LAB in EPFL but will have weekends for myself. So just wanted some ideas on how to make best use of my weekend(s).
I have heard Lausanne is not as beautiful as some of the other places in the country. Can I do day excursions to nearby places? As I am a student, I am looking for low-budget options and as I have booked my accommodation for the whole trip at a student accommodation (Triaudes - FMEL), I would not want to spend a night away and pay extra.
Any recommendations will be highly appreciated.
