The Metropolis of Lyon is competing with European capitals and major cities such as Berlin, Madrid, Dublin, Venice, Paris, Lisbon, Athens or London.
In 2015, Geneva won this prestigious award in the same category... And this year, why not Lyon?
The destination receiving the largest number of votes wins!
