7 itineraries “Encounters and Discoveries” to explore Lyon night and day

“Rome wasn’t built in a day”. Lyon can’t be visited in a day either.
You need time to appreciate the four districts, awarded the label as a UNESCO world heritage site.
And when you’ve enjoyed the charm of Old Lyon and the Presqu’ile, from the top of the Fourvière to the slopes of the Croix-Rousse, there is still plenty more to see.
The world’s gastronomic capital (and its painted frescoes!) is also the French champion for attractiveness, thanks to its large choice…of tourist sites to visit!
To help you visit this amazing city, we have put together 7 itineraries “Encounters and Discoveries”. To pick and choose depending on your mood, titillate your taste buds with a culinary experience, whatever you do: take your time.
Take your time whether strolling under the century old trees in the largest urban park in France or at the foot of the modern architecture of the new Confluence district.
Take your time, because it’s by taking your time that you will really appreciate the unexpected qualities of Lyon.
A “green city” which became, in March 2018, the first city in France to obtain the 4th flower of the label “Villes et villages fleuris”. By managing to create an environment favourable to the living conditions and well-being of its inhabitants, but also…to its tourists! Take your time to enjoy it.
