Short trip to explore Lyon

During your stay in Lyon, there is nothing better than discovering the Fourvière hill which, in addition to giving you a sensational view, is home to unmissable historical sites, first of all the Théatre Romain. The area is also home to the Notre Dame de Fourvière Basilica, while the elegant Saint Etienne Cathedral awaits you at the foot of the hill. And to top it off, treat yourself to an Andouillette or Sabodet dinner in one of the city’s many Bouchons (trattorias)!

Lyon, a pleasant Made in France surprise

Far from the crowded tourist routes, Lyon is a splendid French city with excellent food, where you can breathe a lively but relaxed atmosphere. Lose yourself in the streets of the "Old Town", the largest Renaissance district in Europe, and visit the churches of St Jean, St Paul and St George before enjoying the charm of Place des Terreaux, where the Museum of Fine Arts stands out - full of works by Van Gogh, Gauguin and Cézanne - and the Bartholdi Fountain. Don't miss the Cathedral of Saint Jean dating back to 1100, which houses one of the oldest astronomical clocks in Europe.

  • Lose yourself in the pretty Place des Terreaux
  • Walk through the hills of Fourvière and Croix-Rousse
  • Be enchanted by the incredible Wall of the Lyonnais
