Lyon is usually called the capital city of gastronomy. For a long time, this was equated with sauces and a petit-bourgeois small town complex. But then the TGV high speed train linked Lyon with Paris and Marseille, Olympique de Lyon started to win League Championship after League Championship, and a new Lyon was suddenly filled with daring architecture, crowded cafés and avant-garde exhibitions.

Dive into culture, history, fashion and food. Whether you are here for a weekend or a week you will find things to do, it is easy to fall in love with Lyon.
Fourvière Basilica
From the top of the hill with the same name, an outstanding and unique view enables you to understand the topography and the reasons why it has been classified a world heritage town. You might even be able to see Mont Blanc in the distance.
Musée d’Art Contemporain
It is situated on the border of the Park de la Tête d’Or, adjacent to the newly built Congress Center by Renzo Piano. It regularly beats Paris by gaining sole rights to any Andy Warhol exhibition. Next to the Museum, Renzo Piano’s 3,000 seat amphitheater is worth a visit by itself. One of the most audacious architectural juxtapositions: business, arts and leisure activities all succeed in mingling together in the same living area.
Musée des Tissus
French fashion was born from Lyon’s textile industry. It provides a unique collection presenting more than 2,000 years of history of textile in the world.
La Place des Terreaux/Bartholdi Fountain
The equivalent of San Marco’s horses in Venice, the square with its fountain and four horses (France’s four rivers) is magnificently decorated with fibre optics and “luminous” water columns.
Institut Lumière
The Institute Lumière is located in Monplasir, the historic district of Lyon. This is where the Lumière brothers invented the Cinématographe and also where they, in 1895, made history by making the first film. The four-level Lumière Museum allows you to discover the extraordinary inventions of the Lumière brothers, and within the Hangar Prime-Film there are daily movie showings.
Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere
The Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière was built between 1872 and 1884 and has a great position on a hilltop with great views over the city. Today it is a popular attraction for both locals and tourists alike. The church is decorated with many beautiful details in mosaics, murals and stained glass.
Musée des Beaux Arts
