Lyon and its surroundings :

Between the Saône and the Rhône, Lyon has become one of the metropolises of France and Europe known for its economy, gastronomy and culture.

The city known for its painted walls and its traffic jams, its day markets and its night lights, its bridges thrown between two worlds, two lifestyles, between Fourvière and Croix-Rousse, does not stop evolving.


Today, lovers of street art and detective stories can be found on its banks, enjoying a green city that has reclaimed its banks, a city where pedestrians, cyclists, and streetcars share the space freed up by cars.
A city of the past, attached to its traditions, Lyon is also a city of creators. A city where young chefs, heirs of Paul Bocuse, are kings, where modernity blends with tradition, and which is full of surprises: strolling on Sunday afternoons in the Parc de la Tête-d’Or, spending a sleepless night to admire sites, quays and monuments magnificently illuminated. Or discover the famous “bouchons”, walk along the banks of the Rhône and the slopes of the Croix-Rousse, take part in one of the city’s many festivals as well as discover the Fine Arts Museum…

Whether you are visiting or staying, whether the Rhône-Alpes region has seduced you or not, whether you are skeptical or conquered by the charms of the city, Lyon the lively one will always conceal a secret likely to make you fall over…
