Lyon: Europe's Leading City Break Destination 2016!

Lyon won the award for “Europe's Leading City Break Destination” at the World Travel Awards ceremony, which took place in Sardinia on 4 September 2016.

For this prize rewarding excellence in Tourism, Lyon was up against 15 major cities, including Berlin, Lisbon, London, Madrid, Paris and Venice!
It is a large city on a human scale, whose old districts -- which are more than 2000 years old -- are designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Besides, this is the only place where one can weave through the traboules and visit canut workshops!

Stroll along the banks of the Saône or the banks of the Rhone and then have a seat in a Lyon bouchon, to see for yourself! Or you have the option of experiencing gastronomic extravagance with one of our many starred chefs. In Lyon, as is well-known, we like good food and when you get here, you will soon realise that it is almost impossible to have an unsatisfactory meal!
