At a crossroads between major European road networks, Lyon is one of the best urban destinations in Europe today. This lively city is the second largest in France and is always on the move, offering a wealth of options for new discoveries and leisure pursuits. Here you can try any cuisine from traditional “bouchon” restaurants to original brasseries, and, of course, not forgetting the gourmet delights of Michelin-starred venues. Lyon is the City of Gastronomy par excellence! Take a stroll through the city’s 2000 years of history, including UNESCO World Heritage sites, and go from Roman architecture to bold, contemporary creations. Be amazed by the various museums with their wide-ranging, sometimes unusual themes located in buildings which bear witness to Lyon’s architectural richness over the centuries. Be part of special events which punctuate daily life in Lyon: The Dance and Modern Art Biennales, the Nuits Sonores Festival, the Nuits de Fourvière, the Grand Lyon Film Festival or the Festival of Lights, the biggest public party in Lyon combining tradition with cutting-edge technology. Take a calm stroll in the heart of the Presqu’île peninsula and wander from place to place, from luxury shops via designers’ workshops to fashionable boutiques.
