Explore Lyon with us

Lyon is a bustling, beautiful city set in southern France. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city of Lyon boasts grand architecture and famous landmarks including the medieval Cathedral of St. John, Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière and Pont Lafayette. The ancient history of the city can be experienced at the Roman ruins on the hillside near the Fourvière Basilica at the Ancient Theatre of Fourvière, the Odeon of Lyon and the accompanying Gallo-Roman Museum as well as the ancient Roman Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls which is used for concerts to this day. As well as ancient and classical architecture, Lyon has a number of parks including Parc de la Tete d'Or (The Park of the Golden Head) which is a very popular space incorporating a lake, a rose garden and a zoo. Car hire is a popular way to explore this large city and surrounding area, ensuring that travel time is kept to a minimum so there is more opportunity to experience the region. From Lyon St Exupery Airport travellers head into Lyon as well as the wider Rhone-Alps region and so Lyon St Exupery Airport has grown to become a major hub airport and France's fourth busiest. The Rhone-Alps region is well known for its wine and a roadtrip to sample the vineyards, staying over in the little villages, is a truly French experience.
