When I first heard about Vevey, Nestle came to mind. Being such a large company with products in so many areas of daily life, it was obvious. But then as I found out, even more famous icons can be found here.
Charlie Chaplin came to mind. Rejected by his adopted country, he settled in Vevey and produced some of his finest works. Sure everyone remembers his silent movies, but he was not just an actor but a director too.
Then there is Montreux, yet another town nestled along Lake Leman (that’s lake Geneva for those who don’t know). Again the home of stars – and this time, the name that many a teenager knows back in the 1980s –
Steve McQueen Freddie Mercury (not sure why nobody pointed this error out earlier!). Rock on yeah!
Let Mel show you more about his discoveries of both delectable towns on the shores of the lake if you had not already read about it from our earlier post on Neuchatel. You will be amazed with what sights and sounds that awaits you should you make the journey to the home of star studded Vevey and Montreux.
