Lyon is French city that I am intrigued by - more so than Paris.

I have also seen Zeb's Lyon thread - showing some pretty amazing modern architecture too.

Lyon is about 800 years old French town but still felt it Italian influence. Now Lyon is proud that he is the gastronomic capital of France, capital of silk, lived here and the Lumičre brothers invented cinema. Lyon - the birthplace of Antoine Marie Roger de Saint-Exupery.
