At the picturesque confluence of the Rhône and Saône rivers sits the legendary city of Lyon, the third-largest city in France, famous for its stunning architecture, picturesque parks, and magnificent marina.
Lyon was the capital of the Gauls back when Lyon was ‘Lugdunum’ during the time of the Roman Empire, and it became a major economic hub during the Renaissance. These days, Lyon is recognized for its superior cuisine and architectural landmarks, many of which have been awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status. For four days every December, the city is awash with illuminations as Lyon hosts the Fête des Lumières, the Festival of Lights that earns Lyon the nickname ‘Capital of Lights’.
Simply put, there is a lot to see in Lyon. Historic and cultural sightseeing spots are abundant, beautiful, and diverse - there is something for everyone to see in this city. Bike to Bellecour Square, Fourvière Hill, the Tunnel de la Croix-Rousse, Tête d’Or Park, and along the romantic River Rhône. Ride through the Renaissance district of Vieux-Lyon, the Presqu’île, along the Saône, and to Rambaud Wharf near the Confluence Marina. You can even extend your tour to a full day, and combine it with a beautiful cruise along the Saône with the Lyon City Boat company!
