Nice city with some good restaurants where you can taste the real french high quality food. Also cultural the town can offer you something, including a good archaeological museum, with a large part of an preserved roman city, for those who like old history.
The town lies beautiful at the connection of the rivers Rhone and Saone. The place is surrounded by a nice landscape, giving you also the opportunity to take walks or make trekking tours.
Take yourself more time to visit the city and the surrounding places. It's worth to spend some more time here, you will fing yourself caught by the 'French feeling'.
