Introducing Lyon

Lyon is located in Eastern France, and more precisely in the Rhône-Alpes. Lyon is the capital city of the region Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, and one of the most beautiful French cities to visit.

Set between the rivers Saône and Rhône, the Gauls’ ancient capital is today one of the most attractive European cities from a cultural and gastronomic point of view.

Lyon is a great city for a cultural weekend and also for a gastronomic weekend. With more time available, there are lovely places to visit around Lyon on day trips.
