Travel booking website Expedia has made a list of the top 5 Second Cities in Europe, pointing out that, although the capital cities of Europe have plenty to offer visitors, their towns, villages and smaller cities can also provide visitors with just as many unique and amazing experiences.
The top spot in France was given to Lyon, a city that was described as "France's unofficial centre for gastronomy", which benefits from being home to some of the world's best chefs and being close to some of the country's top wine regions. Lyon has plenty to offer those who are thinking of river cruising in France, and the Nouvel Opera House and Parc de la Tete d'Or came highly recommended by Expedia's travel experts.
