In Lyon, past and future are very much part of the present.
Our city has managed to become one of the favourite French destinations among international visitors.
This is because Lyon is a city on a liveable scale that offers wide-ranging insight into the French “art de vivre”.
Attracting increasing numbers of visitors every year, it is a real City Break destination at a European level. Proof of this is that Lyon is among the Top 10 most popular European cities on Google* and in 2016 it was elected Europe's Leading City Break Destination during the World Travel Awards.
A dynamic and modern city that draws its strength from its world-famous traditions, which are gastronomy, silk and cinema.
Traditions that the city has cultivated and modernized to perfection. Each year, the ONLYLYON Tourism press service welcomes over 250 journalists from all over the world and registers over 400 spin-offs in the national and international press. Figures that are steadily increasing and just go to show
that the press has a growing interest in Lyon.
So welcome to Lyon.
