Steeped in history, culture, and the finest French cuisine, the beautiful 2,000-year-old city of Lyon is a must-visit destination for an indulgent vacation. Lyon is renowned as the gastronomic capital of France, with several Michelin-starred restaurants and countless eateries specializing in local delicacies.

Things to see in Lyon

Get your vacation off to a relaxing start with a browse around the Presqu'île, Lyon's fashionable central “peninsula” between its rivers. Enjoy a spending spree in your choice of French and international designer boutiques, or pop into a specialty shop or bouchon (local restaurant) to sample artisan food and drink of the region. For a different dining experience, seek out the best gourmet restaurants in Lyon and sample the masterwork of some France's finest chefs. Culture vultures will enjoy a dramatic performance in the gorgeous Neoclassical interior of the Théâtre des Celestins, or an evening of opera in the impressive 19th-century surrounds of Lyon's opera house. To explore Lyon's quieter side, head to the hillside district of Croix-Rousse and walk its unique and peaceful covered streets, or traboules. Looking for an indulgent day trip? Nearby Beaujolais, around 20 miles away, is renowned for its wine—ideal for vineyard tours and sumptuous wine tastings.
