Hotels in Lyon, France
Lyon, in the heart of south-central France, is an eclectic city: the remains of the Roman Empire are complemented by the findings of industrial archeology, the centers of high finance and banking by those of the production and processing of silk.
Closed between the rivers Rhone and Saone, Lyon is a wonderful city, cultural, financial and industrial center at the foot of the French Alps. Lyon is famous worldwide for the textile industry and especially for the production of silk.
The city has Roman origins, and Gallo-Roman ruins are scattered all around the whole city: on the hill of Fourvière there is a museum with objects of those remote ages. But the peculiarity of Lyons is to be successful in various styles of European architecture: Renaissance buildings are located in the district of Vieux Lyon, that in the evening is full of tourists and night owls, while in the district of Croix-Rousse, where once there was the silk industry, there are the homes of employees of the silk, the canuts, with ceilings up to 4 meters high to hold the Jacquard looms. The city has always been the center of financial assets and prestigious printing houses that made it extremely rich: during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, here were dressed the noble and wealthy families of around the world.
