Lyon accommodation – Visit the city renowned for its culture
One of France's main centres of culture, Lyon offers sites of historical interest ranging all the way from an amphitheatre built by the Romans thousands of years ago to the imposing City Hall dating back to the 17th century. However, Lyon doesn't simply live in the past and modern architecture also has its place in the city. In particular, the Tour Incity, which is to be finished in 2015, is made entirely of glass and as such offers an interesting contrast to other more traditional buildings. The city's museums follow the same pattern, covering Renaissance painters as well as contemporary artists. Lyon accommodation also allows you to witness the regular festivals which bring the city alive. In particular, the Festival des Lumiéres, marked by thousands of candles placed on windowsills throughout Lyon, is particularly noteworthy.
