Lyon is the gastronomic capital of France, standing at the confluence of the Rhône and Saône rivers. Tracing its roots back two millennia to its Roman avatar as Lugdunum, this vibrant city has always functioned as the industrial and commercial backbone of the nation down the centuries. Apart from the ancient Amphithéâtre des Trois Gaules and the remarkable Renaissance architecture of Old Lyon, the modern city offers trendy fashion outlets, distinctive gourmet flavor and a buzzing nightlife. Catch an avant garde artistic performance, drop by some wonderful museums and sample the city’s sophisticated gastronomic creations. Make the most of your visit by making a pit stop at a quintessential Lyonnais bouchon to relish a plate of duck pâté or roast pork with a salad lyonnaise or sausages on the side, washed down with a bottle of the region’s best sparkling wine.
