Lyon

Lyon is a gastronomic highlight of France, accompanied by the bourgeois beauty of its historic city-center, back-dropped by the merge of the two rivers Rhône and Saône which divide the city in its three parts. Lyon has its rank in history, since the Gallic tribes made it their capital in Roman times. Since then the various epochs have added great buidlings to the city.

But Lyon is not just about food and history - its "light architecture" by Alain Gaillot puts magic on the city when dusk settles in. Lyon is a city full of life, and its relative low profile lets you enjoy French culture off the beaten track.
