Lyon, The Ideal French City
As France’s second largest urban area, Lyon proposes a journey back in time to discover the traditional French art of living. From its cuisine to its historical heritage, not forgetting its lights and silk, the city boasts numerous advantages making it a charming destination for visitors!
Lyon: World Heritage
A living work of art with more than 2000 years of history behind it, the city has a remarkable cultural heritage and no fewer than 500 hectares of the city centre have been registered as UNESCO world heritage.
The capital of French cuisine
Lyon is a leader in the culinary arts. It has around 15 Michelin star-rated restaurants and more than 2000 restaurants in all, including ‘Bouchons’ (traditional restaurants).
A lively cultural scene
Lyon has numerous museums including the Lumière Museum (where cinematography was invented by the Lumière brothers) and the Musée des Tissus (the Fabric Museum, presenting 2000 years of textile history). There's always something going on, all year round, with examples being the Biennial Contemporary art and Dance festivals and the Grand Lyon Film Festival.
An attractive shopping destination
In the city centre, the ‘Carré d’Or’ district offers a wealth of luxury brands while further to the east, the Part-Dieu shopping centre is the largest in Europe with 260 stores. The brand new Hotel Dieu also offers a large range of boutiques along the Rhône river bank.
A city of light
Thanks to a popular tradition, Lyon has enjoyed a very special relationship with light since December 8, 1852. This local festival has gone on to become an international event, today known as the Fête des Lumières (Festival of Light).
