A vibrant city

  • Lyon, City of Gastronomy

Lyon is famous all over the world for the art of fine living. With many Michelin-star restaurants, famous chefs, typical "bouchon" restaurants, café bistros and avant-gardist dining experiences: whatever your taste, there's something for you. Such flavors and colors can also be found throughout the open-air markets or in the Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse, a covered market with permanent stalls where famous chefs stock up.


  • Lyon, a UNESCO World Heritage site

With a rich history spanning 2,000 years, the city has a remarkable architectural heritage. Spreading eastward over the centuries, without building over existing sites, the city has 500 hectares in the heart of town listed as a UNESCO World Heritage since 1998.
