3. Lyon, France

Lyon, France

Because Paris is too swamped with tourists (even in winter!), I say head off to Lyon, a city that celebrates the Festival of Lights (la FΓͺte des lumiΓ¨res) every 8th of December, a celebration of gratitude to the Blessed Virgin Mary who is believed to have the saved the city from a deadly plague during the Middle Ages. There is much to see in Lyon but really I went there because of the renowned Lyonnaise cuisine. It didn't disappoint. Go there to find out!
