Lyon is France’s third-largest city and the capital of the Rhône-Alpes region. It’s a fascinating place with a long and varied history, and its architecture and culture reflect this. The city is home to a large number of historical monuments, including the Roman amphitheatre and the Gothic Cathédrale Saint-Jean. There are also a number of art galleries and museums, including the Musée des Beaux-Arts and the Musée d’Histoire de Lyon. Lyon is also a major centre for fashion and cuisine, and its restaurants and bars are among the best in France. The city is well connected by road, rail and air, and it makes a great base for exploring the surrounding region.
