Lyon

It’s no news that across the world, France is admired for its haute cuisine. But to truly indulge your wildest gourmet fantasies, you must head to Lyon - the country’s gastronomical capital. Located in the Rhône Alps region, its placement on the confluence on the Rhône and Saône rivers make it easy to source exceptional ingredients from many places nearby. Summer vegetables from Bresse farms, fresh fish from Savoy, fruits from Drome and vintage wine from the Rhône Valley all come together at the hands of Lyon’s local chefs. Don't leave the city without sampling some quintessentially Lyonnaise ‘Cervelle de Canut’ or ‘Saucisson de Lyon’ in a bouchon. Though Lyon’s vibrant cultural scene doesn’t stop at fine riverside dining. It’s the birthplace of cinema, and you can catch screenings at arty independent picture houses, as well as soaking up culture at the many photography galleries and museums. As a thriving university city, Lyon is home to many young creatives, and as you’d imagine it boasts a colourful nightlife scene. Check out the thrilling live jazz clubs and the biggest Chinatown outside of Paris.
