Lyon: a rich historic and cultural heritage
A UNESCO World Heritage site, Lyon is a magnificent city where it’s great to take a stroll. The Saint-Jean district, the Fourvière hill and its famous basilica, the Croix-Rousse and its secret passageways are just a few examples of emblematic locations in the third largest city in France. Nicknamed the Cité des Gones, Lyon has a rich historic heritage. Its ancient amphitheatre, a vestige of the Gallo-roman era when it bore the name Lugdunum, today hosts a variety of shows. The city boasts many museums, such as the Maison des Canuts, focussed on the silk trades, the Musée Lumière which relates the extraordinary journey by the Lumière brothers, the Musée des arts de la Marionnette, which refers to Guignol, a true local hero, and even the Lyon History Museum. The new Confluence district, between the Rhône and the Saône rivers, houses a wonderful museum devoted to knowledge, awarded 3 stars in the Michelin Green Guide. With the Tête d’Or park and other gardens and green spaces, the City of Lyon is extremely lovely. During your getaway, do not miss the Peninsula in particular, with the Place Bellecour and the lively streets and surrounding traders. For meals, the traditional Bouchons lyonnais and their specialities will delight you, even if the gastronomic capital reserves many other culinary surprises for you. The city of Lyon boasts a vast public transport network that makes it easy to get to all the city districts: 5 tram lines, 4 underground lines, 3 funiculars and almost 130 bus routes. Among the notable events organized in Lyon is the magical Festival of Light that takes place every year at the beginning of December.
