Paris is the first thing that comes to our minds when we think of planning a honeymoon holiday in Europe. However, with around 32 million annual visitors, it is one of the most-frequented cities in the world. And unless a selfie near Eiffel Tower is your top priority, there is another lesser-known destination that you should head to.
Lesser-known alternative: Lyon, France
Lyon, another city in France with less than one-fifth the number of visitors, yet matching Paris in almost all aspects, is just the perfect alternative for those looking for more privacy while exploring the richness of France. Located at the confluence of the Saône and Rhône rivers, Lyon is the better place to take in medieval and Renaissance architecture, modern cafes and shops, and other tangible forms of French culture.
How to reach: Lyon–Saint-Exupéry Airport is the nearest airport to Lyon at 30km. High-speed train services are available from Paris and Geneva. Buses and taxis are easily available to reach Lyon from nearby cities.
Things to do: Skiing, Roman and Byzantine-era architecture, boutique shopping, St. Jean and St. George cathedrals, museums, parks.
Where to stay: Centre Jean Bosco, Hotel de Normandie
