For many foodies Lyon is considered as the world's gastronomic capital. There are plenty of places to choose from as the city offers more than 2,000 restaurants, including 20 Michelin-starred restaurants in the 2017 guide.
World-famous chef, Paul Bocuse, is an iconic figure of Lyonnaise cuisine and the bustling Halles market is names after him. The Halles is the perfect spot to find the best regional products or to stop for an improvised lunch in one of the specialty restaurants.
While you're there, why not do a bit of shopping? Pick up some local saucisson to bring home with you (or have with your apéro and a glass of feisty local red wine) and some rose praline as a gift for your sweet-toothed friends.
Your holiday to Lyon is also the perfect opportunity to enjoy a meal in a 'Bouchon'. These traditional restaurants are typical to Lyon and are informal, but inviting, places to stop for a hearty meal of local specialities.
