Trains to Lyon



As the gastronomic capital of the South of France, a trip to Lyon is a must for any foodie, while there's plenty to keep even the most devoted culture vulture happy between meals.

With a rich history of art and performance, from its beautifully-preserved Roman amphitheatre to the striking Opéra Nouvel, it's hardly surprising that two of Lyon's most famous sons were the Lumière brothers, inventors of the motion picture.

And thanks to a packed festival schedule – from Nuits de la Fourvière each summer to Fête des Lumieres, which brightens up four dark winter nights in December – there's always a cultural buzz in the air.

Now back to les gourmands… There's no shortage of bouchons Lyonnais to choose from – pick a friendly tavern and tuck into a hearty dinner, washed down with a glass of smooth, succulent Côtes du Rhône.

Délicieux! With tickets from £44.50 return , you can be in the heart of Lyon in just 4h41
