Viewed at high speed from the Autoroute du Soleil, the impression it gives is of a major confluence of rivers and roads. In fact, from the sixteenth century silk was the city's main industry, generating the wealth which left behind a multitude of Renaissance buildings.  The city is now busy forging a role for itself within a new Europe, with international schools and colleges, the new HQ for Interpol, a recently inaugurated eco-friendly tram system, a second TGV station with links to the north that bypass Paris. Most French people would find themselves in Lyon for business rather than for recreation: it's a get-up-and-go place, not a lie-back-and-rest one. You probably wouldn't plan a two-week stay - as you might in Provence's cities - but Lyon certainly has its charms. Foremost among these is gastronomy; there are more restaurants per Gothic and Renaissance square metre of the old town than anywhere else on earth. While the textile museum is the second famous reason for stopping here, Lyon's nightlife, cinema and theatre (including the famous Lyonnais puppets ), its antique markets, music and other cultural festivities might tempt you to stay at least a few days. In addition it has been long established as the home of major biennial festivals of art and fashion.  Lyon is organized into arrondissements, of which there are nine. A visit to Lyon will necessarily take you into the Presqu'île (1er and 2e arrondissements), the area between the Rivers Saône and Rhône, and you're likely to spend some time in Vieux-Lyon (5e) on the west bank of the Saône, as well as the east bank of the Rhône (3e), including the modern development known as La Part-Due.
