Basel, Switzerland

On our way from Interlaken/Meiringen to Basel, we made a stop to Augusta Raurica, the ruins left from a roman colony around 15B.C about 800 years after the origins of Rome.

As we walked in, our first stop was the theatre. This was an outdoor theatre made of stone that could hold 10-1200 people.

After the theatre we went to a tavern. The basement was still mostly in tact and we could see the oven and a small fire place.

We walked by the remains of what used to be a temple.

Continuing our drive, we were above the clouds!

Once we got to Basel, we walked around the city for a few hours, there were carnivals on all across the city that weekend, and we ran in to the Friends bar!

Staying at an AirBnb was a great experience, and a good way to end our trip to Switzerland. We ended up at a Halloween party that night, our  hostesses  were very excited!
