Lyon Vacations

Lyon is one of France's largest cities, and it's rich with culture and history. Its east-central location makes it the perfect base from which to strike out and explore the country. But the city itself is full of great attractions plus so many amazing restaurants that you may not want to leave! Check out Lyon vacation packages and start living "la belle vie," the beautiful life.

Major Attractions

Vieux Lyon, the Old Town, is where you'll find many of the city's most historic buildings and the typically Lyonnaise "traboules," which are courtyard corridors linking two streets. One of the highlights of the Old Town is the beautiful Gothic-style St. Jean Cathedral. From here, you can take a funicular ride up to Fourvière, the original Roman settlement, and the religious district of Lyon. There are several churches in the area—the white marble Fourvière Basilica is the most splendid. Lyon is also a city of gastronomic delights, and the Presqu'île area has some of the best bistros in town. Many of the top hotels in Lyon also have superb restaurants. If you're getting out of the city, look into Lyon rental cars and hit the road. The Alps, the Swiss border, the lake town of Annecy, and the medieval village of Perouges are all within day-tripping distance.

Recurring Festivals and Events

Lyon vacations are wonderful at any time of year and especially during one of the city's major events. During the Festival of Lights on four days in early December, everyone places candles in their windows, bathing the entire city in light. Nuits de Fourvière is a summer festival that takes place in the Roman theater on the hill and features music concerts, shows, and theater performances.
