|#Lyon: France's Best Kept Secret
#Now A UNESCO World Heritage City (ARA) - Lyon, France has long been known to sophisticated travelers as the culinary capitol of France. It is now emerging as a "must-do" destination for a broader range of American travelers because of the many other attractions it offers to visitors. A trip there is easier than ever, with a direct six-hour flight Delta Airlines now offers between New York's JFK and Lyon's Saint-Exupéry airport, named in 1999 in tribute to the author and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, a native of Lyon who wrote 'The Little Prince.'
Recently named a UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) World Heritage City because of its illustrious 2,000-year history, France's second-largest city is brimming with activities and attractions. With its world-renowned cuisine, architecture (boasting the second largest Renaissance quarter in Europe), museums, and picturesque nightly lighting of monuments, Lyon is a place that is renowned for its quality of life. The past is alive in such landmarks as the Gallo-Roman Amphitheater, used for concerts today, and the Croix-Rousse Hill, the center of the silk industry in the 1800s. Its Renaissance quarter is by no means a mere testament to the past, as it stil thrives with daily activity, from hotels to restaurants to shops.
A visit to Lyon makes the pages of a European history book come alive to travelers. Today, life goes on in a city and metropolitan area spanning some 124,000 acres, 1,250 of those acres constitute the historic sector that is now included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
