» » » » » Lyon ( Liyon ). A voyage to Lyon, France, Europe - Fourvière, Palais Saint-Pierre, bouchons dans la rue Mercière...

Commercial, industrial and banking powerhouse for the past 500 years, grand old Lyon (Lyons in English) is the focal point of a prosperous urban area of almost two million people, France’s second-largest conurbation. 
Outstanding art museums, a dynamic cultural life, a busy clubbing and drinking scene, not to mention a thriving university and fantastic shopping, lend the city a distinctly sophisticated air.  Green parks, riverside paths and a historical old town sufficiently precious to be protected on Unesco’s World Heritage list ensure a bounty of discoveries – on foot or bicycle – for the first-time visitor, while adventurous gourmets (particularly those with a penchant for piggie parts) can indulge their wildest gastronomic fantasies in a dining scene that is chic, sharp and savvy.
