Lyon is an attractive metropolis that lies between the Rhône and the Saone river valley systems, offering everything you'd expect from a modern city. It's proximity to the Mediterranean and the Alps make it a destination with countless opportunities for exploration; meanwhile the city itself is a vibrant labyrinth of shops, restaurants and historic sights.

There's plenty to see on a walking tour of this city: colourful parks and lazy cafés seem almost ubiquitous, while the old town is a wonderful maze of narrow streets and passages centred around the pedestrian rue St-Jean which ends at the 12th-to 15th-century Cathedral St-Jean.

Discovering the Rhône valley by car is highly recommended: the winding lanes and sweet smelling orchards that wrap around the region are redolent of heavenly fables. Here you'll find the Beaujolais country, which is incomparable for its wine and cuisine.

Lyon lies 431kms southeast of Paris and 311kms north of Marseille; and is a byway to the Mediterranean. The Rhône valley is a much more scenic place for those looking for something other than sand and sea.

Lyon has an embattled history; evidence of this fact can be seen in the many sights of Lyon. This aside, the city has prospered since the arrival in the 15th century of Louis XI who enjoyed an international influence. Merchandise and merchants came from afar, even from the east, ensuring the steady economic growth of the city.

Lyon is easily reachable and couldn't be any more convenient when travelling there or away. Many of France's major cities have direct motorway routes through to Lyon. The city is also on the TGV line, with regular trains arriving from Paris. A large international airport serves many worldwide cities.
