Under $100 / Europe

Somewhere between Paris, Provence and the border with Switzerland is the charming riverside city of Lyon, a burgeoning culinary capital in a country with one of the world’s best cuisines. Lyon’s reputation as a food destination grew within the past decade, and visitors flock to the less-crazed and friendlier town for a more laid-back approach to French cuisine.

 

Kick off a culinary tour of Lyon with a café au lait and croissant at Lumen near Place Cardo or Le Labo () on the east side of the Rhone River, both specialize in exquisite French coffee.

 

Take to the streets of Lyon for a self-guided walking tour of the peninsula that juts out into the Rhone. Stop by free sights like the exterior of the Musée de Beaux Artes (Museum of Fine Arts), the Bourse de Lyon palace, Place de Jacobins and Place Bellcour.

 

After lunch, wander across one of the westward-leading bridges to the Parc des Hauteurs atop Fourvière Hill where you’ll find the stunning Basilique Notre Dame de Fourvière and breathtaking sunset views with the city behind you.

 

Cross two bridges to the east side of the Rhone for dinner at L’Atelier Côté Rhône near the Guillotière Metro station. Treat yourself to a fanciful French dinner that will tickle the senses with dishes such as the salade Lyonnaise anda tasting board of various fishes or meat, all washed down with delectable Côte du Rhône wine.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.

3 Gifts Travelers Want

Friends and family members of travelers are always looking for the right gift. It’s hard to find something that will surprise a traveler and also be something they use often. Many are trying to look past the typical gifts travelers get, such as notebooks and pens, and looking more toward destination-specific or more unique items. Gift giving can be difficult for some that don’t know what a traveler is looking for or needs, but these three gifts are a great starting point.
