Lyons : Michelin's recommendations
The capital of Gaul, Lugdunum, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was built on two hills at the confluence of the Rhône and Saône rivers. With a history stretching back twenty centuries, the third largest city in France boasts Gallo-Roman ruins, a Renaissance district, Classical-style mansions on the Presqu’île and the silk workers’ houses of the Croix-Rousse quarter, as well as some fine modern architecture. Renowned for its quality of life, Lyon is also famous for its fine cuisine.
