Destination guide

Getting stuffed in France's gourmet capital

Forget Paris, if you really want to know what great food tastes like, come to Lyon. While it may be France's second city, Lyon's widely regarded as the country's gourmet capital. Millions flock to the city every year to not only feast on its culinary delights, but to wander through its narrow medieval streets, and gaze at its many magnificent cathedrals, theaters and museums. What's more, the city is just a short drive from the Beaujolais and Cotes du Rhone vineyards. With Lyon vacation rentals, you know it's not just your taste buds that will be salivating.

Things to do

If it's old and in Lyon, it's worth seeing

There's nowhere that better exemplifies Lyon's old-world charm than the charming Quartier Saint-Jean. This medieval quarter is filled with narrow cobblestone lanes and quaint little courtyards. Across the Saone river is the magnificent 19th-century Opera de Lyon. An absolute must for culture vultures, it presents a wide variety of opera productions, as well as classical music concerts. Another must-see is the Museum of Archaeology, which displays Gallo-Roman-era objects including vases, gravestones, and mosaics, plus statues, coins, and ceramics. The museum also includes a nearby archaeology site that boasts the oldest ancient ruins in France, including 2 Roman theaters.


Lyon—where getting lost is a good thing

Ever since it was founded by the Romans in 43 BCE, Lyon has been a very important city. In the Historic Site of Lyons, you'll discover narrow passageways that pass through buildings, as well as many of the city's most notable sites, including the Hotel-Dieu de Lyon, medieval Lyon Cathedral, and Place Bellecour, Europe's largest open square. In the Presqu-ile (the peninsula between the Rhone and Saone rivers), you can explore a warren of medieval streets, shop in the city's best boutiques, or try the world-famous Lyonnais cuisine in a host of delightful brasseries.


Lyon—toasty in summer, chilly in winter

If you happen to find yourself in Lyon in July, pack some sunscreen. The city's humid subtropical climate means dry, hot summers. Typically, high temperatures hover in the low 80s in July and August, and it's not uncommon to experience 90 or more. It's pretty pleasant until mid-fall, after which it starts to get considerably colder and wetter. It's quite mild in winter, and nighttime temperatures often dip below 30. While there's never a bad time to book a Lyon vacation rental, early fall does have the advantage of tolerable temperatures and little rain.

Natural features

Pilat Regional Nature Park—the wilderness on Lyon's doorstep

Extending for over 160,000 acres, this mountainous area alternates between lush spruce forests, untamed meadows, and steep hillsides covered with vineyards. Its highest peak, Cret de la Perdrix, soars to an altitude of over 4,500 feet, and there are a large number of hiking and mountain bike trails, plus snowshoe and cross-country skiing trails in winter. With Lyon vacation rentals, you're never far from the this wonderful park and its diverse flora and fauna.
