A city voted World Capital of Gastronomy – the stuff foodie dreams are made of!

If your idea of discovering a destination means tasting everything it has to offer, then Lyon is the place to come! With so many excellent choices, the only difficulty is deciding where to eat. As the saying here goes, “qui saute un repas n’est pas lyonnais!” (which, roughly translated, means “Skip lunch?! You ain't from round here, are you?”). From fine restaurants to the famous local bouchons, home-made organic and veggie burgers, falafel and donut shops, as well as tea rooms and coffee shops (for those with a sweet tooth), Lyon is tasty from starter to dessert.
