Lyon reveals its architecture through its districts several of which are included on the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites.

The Lyon site encompasses the historic districts of the Vieux Lyon, the hill of Fourvière, Croix Rousse, and the Presqu'île, 500 hectares of outstanding, continuous beauty.

Lyon was the former capital of the Gauls which was founded in 43 BC. The city has preserved many archaeological relics. Today Vieux Lyon is the largest, most homogenous Renaissance site in France. There are also the typical courtyards and wells, shops, famous traboules and the magnificent Saint-Jean Cathedral.  Lyon picture

The reputation of Lyon for fine cuisine was established centuries ago. Today it is maintained by several hundred chefs. The Lyon region contains the greatest number of ‘starred’ Chefs. From Beaujolais and Burgundy in the north and Côtes du Rhône in the south, some of France's finest vineyards begin at the gates of Lyon. Lyon is easily reached from all countries by train (TGV from Paris and Roissy Charles de Gaulle), air (Saint-Exupery Airport) and car. Link:
