Definitely a place to visit, albeit with a local so you can discover all those mouthwatering flavors. What to expect? Vibrant open and closed markets, rich sausages and cheeses, inviting restaurants and the famous passages (traboules) of Lyon. The old town by the river's edge will charm you and visiting the bistros and dessert shops will make you want to stay forever. We certainly did!
