Musée d’Art Contemporain

Musée d’Art Contemporain

It is situated on the border of the Park de la Tête d’or, adjacent to the newly built Congress Center by Renzo Piano. It regularly beats Paris by gaining sole rights to any Andy Warhol exhibition! Next to the Museum, Renzo Piano’s 3,000 seat amphitheater is worth a visit by itself. One of the most audacious architectural juxtapositions: business, arts and leisure activities all succeed in mingling together in the same living area.

The Old Town

The Old Town

The Old Town is a world heritage treasure. It is one of the biggest areas of Renaissance architecture in Europe and it has succeeded in maintaining an air of mystery that is completely unique…You can frequently walk right through passageways – locally called the traboules – between buildings and yards. The second hill of Lyon: la Croix Rousse, the home of the canuts, the silk workers, where in bygone days, the sound of Jacquart weaving machines was a permanent background noise. Walk down the hill through passageways and courtyard that give a very special ambiance.
