Lyon
The Essential
Highly recommended
The capital of Gaul, Lugdunum, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was built on two hills at the confluence of the Rhône and Saône rivers. With a history stretching back twenty centuries, the second largest city in France boasts Gallo-Roman ruins, a Renaissance district, Classical-style mansions on the Presqu'île and the silk workers' houses of the Croix-Rousse quarter. It also boasts some fine modern architecture at the Cité Internationale and in the Gerland and Confluence districts. Renowned for its quality of life, this city, which is often described as being somewhat discreet, is justifiably famous for its fine cuisine.
