WHAT WE LOVE

If you’re looking to get acquainted with the sophistication of the French, one of the best places to visit is the city of Lyon. It has a trendy community that values and promotes art and French gastronomy. As you walk its marbled streets and cobbled alleyways, you’ll see vibrant street art, independent book stores, artisanal cafés, and Michelin-starred restaurants. Its museums house extensive collections of masterworks by luminaries like Van Gogh, Matisse, and Rembrandt as well as exhibits featuring creations by contemporary artists. The city is also part of the Rhône-Alpes region, a vast expanse of picturesque land with lush appellations where you can find several of the country’s most reputable wineries, many of which offer tours inside their cellars and tastings of their respective signature products.
