Culinary Capital of France
Lyon is a historical city with a vibrant cultural scene as the birthplace of cinema, the silk capital of the globe, and the second biggest Renaissance city following Venice. Between Paris and Marseille in the Rhône-Alpes region, Lyon is the third largest city in France. Not only was this city a mainstay of the French Revolution, it's also a mainstay on tourist itineraries, offering colorful neighborhoods with architectural marvels. Some of the most notable attractions are the narrow passageways unique to Lyon named traboules, built during the 4th century, that pass through buildings and link streets on either side.
This vibrant metropolis has a significant influence on the software industry with a particular focus on videogames, and in recent years, it has fostered a growing local tech startup sector.
The Saône and the Rhône rivers provide many opportunities for boating, water sports, river cruises, and outdoor sightseeing. Be sure to dine in Lyon--the Culinary Capital of France and perhaps the world--at a "bouchon," a friendly restaurant serving local dishes and local wine, such as Côtes du Rhône and Beaujolais. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Lyon trip itinerary using our France attractions app.
