Vevey can hark back on a very long settlement history. The earliest ancestral traits date from pile villages from the Neolithic period and the Bronze Age. Even a burial site from the late Bronze Age has been discovered.

One suppose that this place has been populated by Celts since the 4th Century (BC). During the Roman Empire, Vevey was situated on the very important army trail which connected the Great Saint Bernard Pass (Col du Grand-Saint-Bernard) all along the east shore of Lake Geneva with the largest town and capital of Roman Switzerland. On ancient Roman street directories Vevey was listed under the name of Vibisco, and on the Tabula Peutingeriana Vevey was listed as Vivisco.
