Welcome to Lyon

With more than 2000 years of colorful, tumultuous and thriving history, this French city celebrates the art of living, luxury and fine cuisine.

As the capital of the Rhône-Alpes region located in eastern-central France, Lyon is the largest urban area in France outside of Paris. With a population of over 2 million Lyonnais, it is known as the gastronomic capital of France. Many of France's finest chefs call it home, (one of the most famous being Paul Bocuse) perhaps not coincidentally, as Lyon is located near two of France's best known wine-growing regions: Beaujolais to its north and Côtes du Rhône to the south.

Lyon was chosen as Europe’s best weekend destination in the World Travel Awards 2016! We look forward to seeing you in Lyon.

Today in Lyon

With an exuberant passion for life, Lyon blends its rich past with its bustling present. Lyon is renowned for its historical and architectural landmarks and it is a prestigious UNESCO World Heritage site. Old Lyon offers a glimpse into Medieval and Renaissance times with its restored houses and public buildings. Yet, Lyon is also a major center for the banking, chemical, pharmaceutical, biotech and software industries. It is the international headquarters of Interpol and the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Culturally, Lyon has a well-earned reputation for having world-class art, food and entertainment.

Gastronomy

Lyon is gourmet's paradise. With more than 1600 restaurants in the city itself, visitors have access to some of the best chef's tables in the country, if not the world. From Michelin-starred restaurants to local bistros known as bouchons, Lyon cuisine delivers an artful experience; a virtual riot for the taste buds. The locals credit the beginning of Lyonnais cuisine (bouchons) with the legendary Mères Lyonnaises. View a partial list of restaurants here.

Nightlife

You may be surprised to learn that Lyon is France’s second party city, where residents and visitors alike come to enjoy spectacular nights out! Vieux Lyon, Presqu’île, Croix Rousse and the Saône riverbanks are some of the city's trendiest locations. And for a spectacular 'nightcap', be sure to have a look at the city’s monuments at night as 100,000 projectors illuminate 200 sites bringing the city’s night scene to life! Click for a list of the city's hot spots.

Shopping

Whether it's fashion, furnishings or antiques, shopping in Lyon is a deeply-rooted tradition and there are several shopping areas that are guaranteed to please. Here are a few local favorites:

The Presqu'île: Situated between Place Bellecour and Cordeliers, Le Carré d’Or is home to over 70 different designer labels and brand name stores; a major hotspot for shoppers. Be sure to visit rue Edouard Herriot to find the high-end boutiques of Dior, Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Mont Blanc, Escada, Cartier and other premier designers. The area between rue Victor Hugo and rue de la République is one of Europe’s largest commercial and pedestrian zones and here is where you will find the majority of high street shops and chain stores. Close by is the Auguste Comte quarter (south of Bellecour) made up of nearly 100 stores that sell antiques, art work, home furnishings and more. 

Croix Rousse: If you'd prefer to shop away from the commercial and high street stores, visit Le Passage Thiaffait, home to the Village des Créateurs, located on the Croix-Rousse hills. This unique designer's village features several workshops and boutiques of young and up-coming Lyon designers and offers them an opportunity to exhibit their work.

La Part-Dieu: Located on the left bank of the Rhône river, La Part-Dieu’s shopping center houses over 260 stores, including the famous Les Galeries Lafayette. The Center also includes a 14-screen cinema, restaurants and bars.
