Indulge in local specialties like quenelles, coq au vin, and the iconic Lyonnaise salad, accompanied by a glass of Côtes du Rhône wine from nearby vineyards.

Discover Lyon’s cultural treasures at the Musée des Beaux-Arts, home to one of the finest art collections in France, and the Musée des Confluences, where science, history, and anthropology come together in a stunning architectural masterpiece. Explore the vibrant Croix-Rousse district, once the center of Lyon’s silk industry, now a bohemian neighborhood known for its street art and creative energy.
