Hungry for a Short Break? Try the Food Capital of France

Created: 20 September 2015

Blending France’s gastronomic capital with an en-route stopover in its actual capital, this short break to Lyon has all the ingredients for Francophiles and food lovers alike. Dine at an array of eateries in Lyon, ranging from Michelin-starred restaurants to bustling bistros, pausing between meals to explore the city’s UNESCO Heritage Site-listed attractions, enjoy riverside strolls, take in a performance at the renowned opera house or indulge your cultural side at galleries ranging from the classic Musée des Beaux Arts to the recently-opened contemporary Musée des Confluences. An overnight stay in Paris provides further opportunity for luxurious lunching on the Left Bank or tucking into saucisson at a Seine-side café. A four-night break costs from £500 pp (two sharing) including rail travel and B&B (three nights in Lyon, one night in Paris).
