Lyon, France’s third largest city, invites you to quite the high life. Not only has its airport been named in honour of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, its most famous son and author of the world renowned The Little Prince, but it will also treat you like a little more than a little prince. Lyon is, after all, France’s gastronomic capital, and it will make you eat like a king.
The Institut Lumière: For a classic Bordelais experience, tourists join locals and wander through the Marché des Capucins on the lookout for the freshest market produce .
The Musée Gadagne: Located in the center of the Vieux Lyon, it teaches visitors about local history, from silk weaving to cinema and beyond. The second part of the museum houses an international collection of puppets, featuring Guignol, one of the city’s icons.
The Passage Thiaffait: Once known for its silk production, Lyon is still criss-crossed with remains of its rich textile history. The Passage Thiaffait is one of many covered passageways known as traboules.
