Discover the capital of gastronomy
Undoubtedly, the most attractive part of the city is Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon). You can wander around the authentic alleyways for hours and go in search of the hidden traboules (covered passageways). In Lyon, foodies can feast on the finest (regional) dishes and best wines. Have a traditional Lyonnaise meal in a classic bouchon, or look around Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse, a huge covered market. This city has been known for centuries as ‘the capital of gastronomy’, and with good reason. Not only is Lyon the ideal destination for weekend holidays, it’s also a perfect starting point for a longer vacation in France. Treat yourself: book a flight to Lyon!
A city between two rivers
Running through Lyon are the rivers Rhône and Saône, the banks of which have been transformed into fantastic areas where there’s plenty to see and do. In Parc des Berges du Rhône, you can walk and cycle right in the middle of the city. Looking for a nice souvenir? Les Puces du Canal is the largest antiques market in the region. Among its 400 stalls you’ll certainly find something to your liking.
