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.
