As the birthplace of gastronomy as we know it, Lyon has long been a welcoming playground for foodies — but there’s much more to enjoy in France’s third largest city. History and culture add layers of depth to this metropolis, whether it’s through the eye-catching architecture found throughout the city or the various museums exhibiting everything from world-class art to the history of cinema.

But back to the gastronomy: there’s no doubt that palate-pleasing dishes are one of the main draws in Lyon. International cuisine and fine dining options abound, but the true star of Lyon’s culinary scene is the bouchon, a traditional, casual French restaurant where diners can enjoy authentic local dishes without breaking the bank. Although the latest concepts by the wealth of creative chefs who set up kitchens in Lyon will attempt to distract visitors from these inexpensive restaurants, a hearty plate at a bouchon is a must when visiting the city.

Beyond the dining scene, Lyon is a modern metropolis with plenty for travelers to enjoy. Historic basilicas and churches add a touch of charm to the city’s skyline, while the wealth of museums, theaters and art galleries ensure the local culture scene pleases even the worldliest of travelers. Quaint neighborhoods seem to teem with history and are well worth a stroll to see what welcoming cafes, shops and architecture lie around the corner. And when it comes time to return to the modern world, the economic center known as the Presqu’ile awaits with its wealth of high-end shops, restaurants and entertainment.
