Getting stuffed in France's gourmet capital

Forget Paris, if you really want to know what great food tastes like, come to Lyon. While it may be France's second city, Lyon's widely regarded as the country's gourmet capital. Millions flock to the city every year to not only feast on its culinary delights, but to wander through its narrow medieval streets, and gaze at its many magnificent cathedrals, theaters and museums. What's more, the city is just a short drive from the Beaujolais and Cotes du Rhone vineyards. With Lyon vacation rentals, you know it's not just your taste buds that will be salivating.

Things to do

If it's old and in Lyon, it's worth seeing

There's nowhere that better exemplifies Lyon's old-world charm than the charming Quartier Saint-Jean. This medieval quarter is filled with narrow cobblestone lanes and quaint little courtyards. Across the Saone river is the magnificent 19th-century Opera de Lyon. An absolute must for culture vultures, it presents a wide variety of opera productions, as well as classical music concerts. Another must-see is the Museum of Archaeology, which displays Gallo-Roman-era objects including vases, gravestones, and mosaics, plus statues, coins, and ceramics. The museum also includes a nearby archaeology site that boasts the oldest ancient ruins in France, including 2 Roman theaters.

While there's never a bad time to book a Lyon vacation rental, early fall does have the advantage of tolerable temperatures and little rain.
