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.
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.

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.
