Capital of Valais, both urbane and food-loving, Sion features a magnificent old town redeveloped to be modern and welcoming (winning the Wakker Prize 2013 awarded by the Swiss Heritage Society). It houses more than 3,000 enterprises and 700 stores, and hosts a fantastic terraced vineyard as well as one of the biggest apple and apricot orchards in Switzerland. The foodie town label stems from the skill of its restaurants, seven of which boast Gault Millau points, and its attractions for food-lovers.
