Whatever it takes, you must put Lyon on the top of your list! Former capital of Gaul, Lyon has a rich cultural heritage that dates back 2,000 years. Book a flight for your trip to Lyon and admire the old quarter, with its stunning Renaissance architecture and mercantile past. Explore its famous traboules, corridors that link the houses and end your tour by heading up to the Fourvière Basilica. With its lofty, panoramic view over Lyon, on a clear day you can also spot the Northern Alps! Reserve a hotel room close to Lyon’s iconic landmarks. Famous for its cuisine, Lyon will appeal to any food-lover. Tickle your taste buds with quenelles and rosette (a Lyonnais sausage), washed down with a local Côtes du Rhône. Tempting, isn’t it? If you love the great outdoors, then head to Saint Cyr or Mont d’Or, with their panoramic views of Lyon and landscapes that stretch towards Southern France. And, if you fancy a change of tune, make sure you visit Lyon’s ‘usine des eaux de Caluire’. This 19th Century man-made, subterranean lake and steam pump fed the city’s water supply and the site has since been classified a Monument Historique!
