Lyon and its heritage

less than a minute reading

The third most populated city in France, Lyon is often firstly regarded as the center of French gastronomy. It has way more to offer! The History of Lyon goes back to Ancient Times, when it was capital of Gaul under the Roman Empire, a status that speeded up its expansion and is still expressed through the many landmarks, most of them being UNESCO heritage. Lyon is also a high-tech center, an access point towards the Alps (East) and the Mediterranean (South).
