About Lyon


France's culinary capital is the greedy gourmand's heaven with an enchanting bustle of bountiful markets, trendy bistros and renowned bouchons – the certified traditional restaurants. Lyon is as dynamic as it is quaintly lethargic. Below the surface you will find hidden courtyards and ‘traboules’ – secret passageways! – lurking behind its opulent facades. Futuristic architecture rises out from its rich Renaissance legacy.

During World War II, Lyon was both a centre for the occupying German forces and a stronghold of the resistance, hence the secret passages!

Lyon has a stirring student population and an engaging cultural calendar, and overall oozes self-possessed conservative chic. Mingle with the locals, and they will teach you a thing or two about ‘Art de Vivre’ – it is all about indulging in simple pleasures at a gracious leisurely pace. Revel in traditional rustic fare or outrageous haute cuisine, take in the elegant scenery with a promenade along the Rhône, and soak in the sun at the Parc de la Tête d'Or.

Louis and Auguste Lumière created moving pictures in Lyon in 1892 and established the world’s first cinema!
