At the confluence of two rivers, the Rhône and the Saône, at the foot of two hills, lies the third largest city in France, Lyon. The famous Lugdunum, an ancient Roman colony, for those who read comics, has 2,000 years of history. Medieval, renaissance, old and picturesque, modern and modern, Lyon is waiting for you to explore it. Its center, called "almost island", Presqu’ île, as it looks like a peninsula between the two rivers, is dominated by the huge Bellecour square. Walk in the stone alleys, enjoy the architectural heritage of the cultures that passed through here and take your time to choose from the many tempting gastronomic proposals for which this city is famous. Continue the walk to Place St. Vincent to admire the famous Lyon wall, one of the largest murals in the world. Climb the Fourvière Hill, the "praying hill" by cable car from Old Lyon and visit the Notre Dame de Fourvière, one of France's most important attractions. Do not forget to follow the Silk Road, in the area of Croix-Rousse, or otherwise on the "working hill". There, in the 19th century, were the traditional weaving workshops, which made Lyon a world capital of silk. Be careful not to get lost in the labyrinthine alleys of traboules!
