MOUNTAINS - HISTORY - GASTRONOMY - ANCIENT TIMES

In short

  • Lyon is an old town: founded by the Romans under the name of Lugdunum, it used to be the Gauls capital. It has kept traces of its Roman past, especially on Fourvière hill.
  • Lyon has a wonderful architecture style: Haussmannian buildings in the 6th district, medieval streets in the Vieux Lyon, the traboule passageways: so many ways to be truly amazed. Then go and relax in the Parc de la Tête d'Or.
  • Lyon is a cultural and student town; hence, many festivals take place there. The Quais du Polar (at the end of March) celebrate detective literature; the Nuits Sonores ("Sound Nights", at the end of May) honour electronic music; the Nuits de Fourvière ("Fourvière Nights"), during summer, are also interesting. The Biennales de la Danse et d’Art Contemporain ("Contemporary Art and Dance Biennales") make the city even more vibrant.
  • Last but not least, the most popular event of all is the Fête des Lumières (literally, the "Light Festival"), which occurs in December and gathers millions of curious tourists and visitors.
  • Lyon's gastronomy revolves around delicatessen, which is served in "bouchons lyonnais", small specialized restaurants mostly located in the Vieux Lyon.
  • The Alps, where you will either ski or hike, are not far, only 2 hours by car, go there while you can!
