Or allow your eyes to roam around the Halles de Lyon-Paul Bocuse, an enormous roofed market filled with fresh ingredients and delicacies of every kind. The city’s reputation as the capital of gastronomy has stood for centuries. With traditional bistros to Michelin-starred restaurants to choose from, it is well deserved.
