A thousand and one ways to discover Lyon

Lyon has become one of France's favourite destinations for national and international visitors.
The reason? Lyon is a city on a human scale, offering a concentration of the French art of living.
Everyone can experience it in their own way, and for a short, medium or long stay, become a true Lyonnais.

By discovering its gastronomy: sample Lyonnais cuisine at a bouchon, munch on pralines, savour Lyonnais specialities and enjoy a feast with friends or family.
Enjoying the city's many landscapes: contemplate the Alps from Fourvière, admire the Renaissance facades in Vieux-Lyon, be surprised by the modernity of the Confluence district. 
By experiencing all that Lyon has to offer: walking along its rivers, climbing its hills, running in its parks, dancing at the Biennale or the Nuits Sonores, taking in the sights and sounds of the Fête des Lumières.
All the while focusing on what makes it such a committed destination: living sustainable experiences, testing local know-how, meeting its inhabitants while respecting its environment.

Our press department welcomes over 150 journalists from all over the world and has counted over 450 national and international press articles. Don't hesitate to contact us if you too would like to experience Lyon for yourself.

Welcome to Lyon.
