Why come to Lyon
With one of the highest number of restaurants per inhabitant in France, Lyon has often been recognised as the country’s food capital. In 1935, food critic Curnonsky, aka the Prince of Gastronomy, described Lyon as “the world capital of gastronomy”.
Geographically well situated at an intersection of poultry, wine, fruit and vegetable producing regions, Lyon elevates these goods at the heart of its gastronomy.
So come to Lyon to discover French cuisine and to fall in love with it!
