Lyon

Lyon

Surprisingly for a city that until 2014 had  no world-class museum, no great cathedral, and none of the top thirty tourist attractions in France, Lyon claims to be the second tourist destination in France after Paris, and ahead of Nice or Strasbourg.

But in fact, maybe this is not too surprising. Lyon is France's second city, one of France's oldest cities, and is reputed as the gourmet capital of France. It's large historic centre, Le Vieux Lyon, is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and is the largest ensemble of Renaissance buildings in Europe. In addition, Lyon also has a new museum which looks as if it may vie for celebrity with the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao. The new Confluences museum lies at the point where the Saône and Rhone rivers meet, and is a museum of science and anthropology, with plenty of interactive exhibits.
