Lyon

lyon city

The gastronomic capital of France

Nestled between the rivers Saône and Rhône, Lyon is France’s second largest city and a paradise for foodies. The city has a fascinating network of traboules and medieval underground passages, bohemian squares, spellbinding art galleries and museums (the art scene in Lyon rivals Paris in reputation). An abundance of fashion stores and some of the finest markets in France are other enticements for visitors.
