      Advice on what to do and what to see when traveling to France

      As third most populated city in France after Paris and Marseille, Lyon is ready to host Juventus again after welcoming them back in 2014 and 2016.

      This city is a beautiful destination and perfect for someone to combine his/her passion for the Bianconeri with tourism. Lyon rises at the confluence of the Rhone and Saone and is distinguished by a beautiful historic center: the "old town" is the heartbeat of the city, a Renaissance district in which to get lost in the alleys and streets.

      For a Unesco World Heritage site, do not miss the Place Des Terreaux with the Town Hall and the Museum of Fine Arts (famous for their collection of coins) and the Cathedral of Sant Jean. The latter, inside, boasts one of the oldest astronomical clocks in Europe. And of course, do not miss out on visiting the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière, located on a hill dominating the city from above.

      Among the sites to go and see, is the Wall of the Lyonnais. The facade of an entire building was in fact frescoed with life scenes in which various typical characters of the city are portrayed.

      Inaugurated on January 9, 2006, the Groupama Stadium (or Parc OL) has a capacity of 59 286 spectators, the third largest in the country. It is not located in the city center, on the contrary, it is located in the municipality of Décines-Charpieu - on the outskirts - and can be easily reached both by car and by public transport. It hosted six matches during the 2016 European Championships as well as the 2018 Europa League final, won by Atletico Madrid 3-0 against Olympique Marseille.
