The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Reader recommendation: For a lovely intro to France, Lyon has it all

An @latimestravel reader recommends Lyon, France, where food, history and more make for an enriching time

I stopped in Lyon earlier this month while on a ski trip to France. It's a terrific city, with phenomenal food as well as great Roman ruins and museums. The old city is charming; it's a good place to take teenagers as an introduction to France, Roman history, etc. Very walkable.
