A Roman day in Nyon

Saturday 11 June 2016

For one day, the Roman Museum of Nyon has invited you to take a step back to Roman times. You've seen gladiators fighting, comedians animating fascinating stories and legionnaries patrolling. You've discovered different aspects of Roman craft, had a taste of the stunning flavours of ancient food, played like the Romans did and followed a discovery trail of the remains of "Noviodunum".
