Lyon, world capital of good food and fine cuisine
Eating well is an integral part of any visit to Lyon. The “bouchons” are the typical restaurants where you will be served local dishes such as “grattons”, cold meats, and “bugnes”, all with a smile… Although Lyon highlights its culinary traditions, it also leaves room for new trends and varieties.
Lyon, the City of Three Rivers
Lyon is a great place to discover by boat. Take a boat trip on the Rhône or the Saône and see the city in a different light. A famous French wit once quipped that a third river flowed through Lyon: a river of Beaujolais wine…. But there are no boat trips on that one!
