Lyon and Rhône Valley: culture, gastronomy and wines…

Beginning at the gates of Lyon to the Camargue, the Rhône Valley offers a very varied range of climates, landscapes and vineyards.

The territory of the Rhône Valley, which extends from Lyon to Avignon, via Vienne and Valence, has nearly 6,000 farms, spread over 77,175 hectares. The region benefits from a temperate continental climate in the North, and a Mediterranean climate marked by the Mistral in the South. The Rhône Valley is also the birthplace of prestigious appellations: Saint-Joseph, Hermitage, Côte-Rôtie or Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Lovers of wine, nature, sport and the sun will certainly find their happiness there.

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its famous historic center, Lyon has not finished surprising you. Rich in 2000 years of history, Lyon takes you through its picturesque alleys, its interior courtyards, its cathedral, its museums and its Opera.

Finally, the city is not to be outdone in terms of culture and life to the rhythm of the 21,000 annual events. Dance Biennial, Contemporary Art Biennial, Festival of Lights or Sound Nights, everything is done to never get bored!

Located at the crossroads of rich culinary traditions, the city of Lyon was declared “Capital of gastronomy” in 1935 by the famous critic Curnonsky. Even today, eating well is an art, gastronomy an institution!

This region where the pleasure of living is on display is a stopover rich in charm, colors and wonder!
