Martigny is a nice small town in Switzerland at the area of the 'Wallis'. It's not so big, but the place offers you a good museum, showing you the ancient history but also an oldtimer exhibition - which is very nice - and local art. At several places you can watch roman buildings, integrated in modern houses.

You can't do here so much at night, because there're only a few bars, but it's nice to take a walk after dark, when the city is quite. Also if you like walking, you can use Martigny as a starting point for nice daytrips, also for example to Aosta at Italy.

Basel History

Basel has great history and traditions. During the Roman Empire, Augusta Raurica was settled upstream of Basel. A castle was built on the hill near Basel Münster. The older Celtic settlements have also been discovered in this area. Basel possessed the only bridge between Lake Constance and the sea.  In Latin, the basil was called 'Basilia' and this name has also been preserved in history. In 999, Basel was ruled by Prince Bishop, whose memories are still preserved in the Basel coat-of-arms. The construction of the Catheredal in Basel started under German Emperor Heinrich II. In 1356, a disastrous earthquake destroyed much of the city. ... Read more »
