Lyon

iStock International
Lyon — The country’s second largest city is also France’s beloved food capital and home to famed restaurateur Paul Bocuse. Off the path from most itineraries, Lyon thrives with restaurants (colloquially called bouchons), specialty food markets and shops, and an ancient silk-weaving heritage that gave this Rhone-perched city its unique medieval design.

Why Go

For three-hour meals in the bouchons, to shop the glorious food markets, and to drink regionally produced wine!
