It's only an alternative, in as much as Paris in Las Vegas is an alternative, nobody's going to be confused about it being the real thing.
The recreation of buildings and street scenes does not recreate the soul of a city, only people and history can do that.

If they have an Army, they should just surrender now, and save the money on their captured and surrendered soldiers.

Haha, recreating Lyon, and who the hell would want to go there ?! Even in France, Lyon is really far to be any close to the tourist "hot spots". Whose bright idea was that...

Hey, I have an idea, why not recreating Detroit ?! Should attract many tourists !

I wonder if they are going to create the suburbs.
You know, with the shacks and burnt out cars.
Maybe have actors playing the role of rioting kids. Sounds interesting. A tourist area.
