Lyon is one of France’s cultural hubs and the place to indulge in a gastronomic feast, a shopping spur and to dance till the early of the morning. The Rhone and Saône River flows through the city, which has beautiful parks and secret passages called traboules . Discover France’s rich history as you explore the old historical centre of Lyon (Vieux Lyon), a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lyon was an important Roman city and a silk weaving centre in the 18th century. Stroll along cobblestone streets lined with medieval and Renaissance houses to the Roman style Cathedral St-Jean. The cathedral has a Gothic façade and is decorated with stone medallions. The Basilica of Notre-Dame was built on top of the Fourviere, the ‘hill of prayer’ and is a great example of ecclesiastical architecture. From the top of the observatory tower, enjoy a panoramic view of the city of Lyons. Lyon is also a delight for the kids with attractions like the Aquarium du Grand Lyon, the Doll Museum and puppet shows. The city also offers great shopping in the Presqu’île and a number of places where you can enjoy a meal in a traditional bouchon (bistro) or an exclusive restaurant.
