France - Lyon & the Rhone Valley (Chapter)
This is the Lyon & the Rhône Valley chapter from Lonely Planet's France guidebook.
Grand old Lyon, with its cobbled Unesco-listed old town, is France's third-largest metropolis and gastronomic capital. Downstream, the Rhône forges past centuries-old Côtes du Rhône vineyards yielding some of France's most respected reds, eventually reaching the rugged Gorges de l'Ardèche.
- delve into Lyon's hidden labyrinth of traboules (secret passageways)
- bike the vine-ribboned hills of Beaujolais
- see dramatic Gallo-Roman ruins, including a perfectly preserved Corinthian-columned temple in Vienne
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Lyon, North of Lyon and Downstream along the Rhône.
