Spent two weeks here take French classes. It has secured it's place as my favorite French city. Definitely come for the food, the croix rousse area, the fete des luminees and the FOOD.
Lyon is just an amazing city and so underrated, in my opinion. I would highly recommend it for someone who loves food, art and history but would like to get off the beaten track. The little restaurants and patisseries in Vieux Lyon are absolute treasures. Also, the Musée De Confluences was a surprise favourite - one of the most well-curated museums in the world. At least, in this travellers experience. Don't forget to take the furnicular for a great view of the city and also take the vaporetto boat for a new way to experience Lyon.
LYON A visit to Lyon is the right choice for everyone. A perfect combination for wine and lovers of splendid architecture. The old town with narrow streets, also a great place to enjoy food. The French will tell you that lyon is the true gastronomic capital of France.
Paris gets all the buzz . . . But, do not dismiss Lyon and this is a very special city in its own right, especially for the FOOD! The French will tell you that Lyon is the true "Gastronomic Capital" of France and if you are a lover of French food - the city is a must. The eating establishments are called "bouchon" - lie a bistro, but offering a more limited menu, often very intimate and usually run by the same family for years. My wife and I went crazy eating here. Our favorite bouchon is called Cafe Garet. Highly recommend!! Lyon also has a very good "Old town" with narrow streets and splendid architecture.
