And if that's not enticing enough, mark your calendars for December 8, because we are adding a sprinkle of Belgian charm to Lyon's vibrant streets with the grand opening of our new store in the Westfield La Part-Dieu shopping center.
Picture this: cobblestone streets winding through historic quarters, the tantalizing aroma of freshly baked baguettes wafting through the air, and the Seine River whispering stories of centuries gone by. Now, add a dash of DPT Antwerp's distinctive style to the mix, and voilà – you've got the recipe for an unforgettable city trip.
Lyon's charms: a love affair with the past
Lyon, often referred to as the "Gastronomic Capital of France," is a city that effortlessly blends its rich history with a modern, cosmopolitan vibe. Stroll through Vieux Lyon, the city's UNESCO-listed Old Town, where pastel-hued buildings adorned with flower boxes transport you back in time. Lose yourself in the traboules, hidden passageways that weave through the city like a secret maze.
For the art enthusiasts, the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon is a treasure trove of masterpieces. Picture this: Monet's masterpieces casually hanging out with Van Gogh, while Cézanne shares whispered secrets with Rodin. A blockbuster lineup that will make your inner culture vulture do a delighted pirouette. And fear not, if the artistic intensity leaves you hungry for more, there's always a boulangerie nearby ready to satisfy your cultural cravings.
And of course, no visit to Lyon would be complete without a pilgrimage to the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière. The basilic stands proudly atop the Fourvière Hill, offering not just a sanctuary for the soul but also a panoramic spectacle for the eyes. It's like having a front-row seat to a divine performance, where the architecture takes a bow, and the city skyline stands in applause.
DPT Antwerp's grand entrance

Savoring Lyon's culinary delights
A trip to Lyon is a symphony for the taste buds. Indulge in a gastronomic adventure by exploring the city's bouchons – traditional Lyonnais restaurants where hearty, home-style dishes reign supreme. These cozy, traditional eateries are where culinary art meets charming chaos. Picture this: red-checkered tablecloths, waiters with a flair for the dramatic, and a menu that reads like a culinary love letter. From quenelles that dance on your tongue to coq au vin that steals the show, bouchons are the stage where Lyon's culinary drama unfolds.
For the true connoisseur, Les Halles de Lyon is not just a market; it's a gastronomic playground. Named after the legendary chef Paul Bocuse, this culinary haven is a cornucopia of delights. From artisan cheeses that whisper tales of the countryside to the freshest produce that could make a tomato blush – it's a food lover's dream come true. Grab a baguette, pick up some fromage, and indulge in a picnic that's a symphony of flavors.
And what better way to conclude a day of exploring than with a leisurely dinner along the Rhône River? Savor each bite as the city lights dance on the water, creating a magical ambiance that perfectly complements Lyon's romantic charm.
