Lyon crossroads of Europe, city of meeting and exchanges
Ideally located at the confluence of the Rhone and Saone, at the crossroads of Europe and easy to access, 2 hours from Paris, Lyon is a city rich in heritage, at the UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has always been an economic crossroads.
Stroll along the cobbled streets, inner courtyards, admire the splendid renaissance facades and do not hesitate to enter the famous traboules, where it is good to get lost to discover all the secret charm of the city.
Take height from Fourvière to admire panorama and Notre Dame de Fourviere basilica. Go down the slopes of the famous district of Croix Rousse.
Do not miss the Cathedral Saint Jean with its magnificent facade and astronomical clock.
Let's not forget the Roman origins of Lyon.
You will be able to discover some vestiges of this ancient time with the amphitheater of the Three Gaul located in the district of Croix Rousse and the Gallo-Roman amphitheater of Fourvière with near the museum of the Gallo-Roman civilization
Lyon is also popular traditions like Guignol and the inevitable Festival of Lights. Around December 8, since 1852, during 4 days at night you can stroll through the streets to discover creative light wraps projected on the facades of buildings, all in a warm atmosphere.
