Lyon

Flanked by two hills – Fourvière and Croix-Rousse – the city of Lyon lies proudly between Paris and Marseille, but its cultural significance is greater than the average of the two. Considered by many to be the real capital of French food, visitors can enjoy traditional Lyonnais favourites as well as the classics reinvented by a new wave of contemporary chefs. The Gateway to the Alps and Geneva reveals surprises past the notable influence of gastronomic delights, beginning with Tête d'Or Park which is situated directly opposite Warwick Reine Astrid - Lyon. Roman ruins, Renaissance-era architecture, abundant art spaces, cutting-edge design and renovated riverfronts satisfy a variety of appetites on Lyon vacations in this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Events in Lyon

Fête des Lumières

This festival of lights has been a highlight since the evening in 1852 when the residents of Lyon spontaneously lit the city with candles to celebrate the successful placement of a statue of the Virgin Mary on Fourvière Hill. For four nights around December 8, artists light historic buildings, streets and squares with a series of dramatic light show installations.
