Welcome to the global capital of gastronomy! If you have a refined palate, if you like tasting local products or if you are a big fan of nature, the city of Lyon is the perfect place for you. Take advantage of the restaurants, in which the menus are overflowing with the most delicious dishes created by the top chefs of Lyon. Besides the divine cuisine that can be enjoyed, Lyon has plenty of monuments and historic sites waiting to be discovered. However, you should also take the time to go for a walk along the famous 'traboules' (a type of passageway) of Lyon, but keep in mind that they are not all open to the public. Esteemed by tourists, these small secret passages allow you to quickly get from one point to another. If you don't suffer from vertigo you can also ride the Ferris wheel on Bellecour Square (only present in winter), which will take you 60m up into the air and give you a bird's-eye view of Lyon. Those who are scared of heights, beware!If you get the chance, go for a stroll on Place des Terreux under the moonlight, as the lighting is amazing. Indeed, Lyon is a place where everything that shines is very popular. Its traditional Festival of Lights commemorates the inauguration of the statue of the Virgin of the Fourvière church tower with an explosion of lights. Every night, the city's 250 monuments, sites and quays are lit up, turning it into a sort of nocturnal masterpiece. Why not go for a wander around the Parc de la Tête d'Or? With seven beautiful entrances, these splendid gardens attract nature lovers all year round. The most noteworthy entrance is probably the Enfants du Rhône gate. Here you will have a view of a 40-acre lake nestled in a beautiful setting. Flower-covered hills, large rose beds, and even the peonies will guide your walk and surround you with sweet scents and colours. Today, it is still one of the biggest and most beautiful urban parks in France.
