The reservation site Hotels.com has just revealed its 2013 rankings for French cities that have attracted the most foreign visitors.

Lyon was placed 6th on the list and has managed to achieve a place amongst the most popular French cities for foreign visitors thanks to its exceptional cultural heritage, quality of life, gastronomy and environment. The arrival of low-cost airlines at Lyon Saint-Exupéry airport has also played an important role in the development of tourism in Lyon.

Not surprisingly, Paris, Nice and Disneyland took the first three places in the rankings, followed by Cannes and Marseille.
