A place like nowhere else

Located between the Saône and the Rhône, Lyon was the capital of the Gauls, of silk and of printing. Today, it is known as the capital of gastronomy and a major European metropolis. Its cultural life is extremely rich. Lyon is also the city of the small unusual passages, the traboules, which one crosses to discover the city. Five hundred hectares of the city are listed as Unesco World Heritage. 
Lyon has also known how to renew itself, by giving green back to pedestrians and cyclists and by letting street art express itself in the streets of Croix-Rousse. 

We wish you a warm welcome!

Visit Lyon and the region



Located between Northern and Southern Europe, in the heart of the natural corridor formed by the Rhone Valley, the Lyon region has always been a place of passage, a stop-over city and a meeting and exchange point.
This position is confirmed today in many sectors, making the Lyon metropolitan area the capital of the Rhône-Alpes region, but above all a European metropolis.



The Region

The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region offers a wide range of destinations in addition to Lyon, the capital of gastronomy. Discover, of course, the Alps and the Mont Blanc, the roof of Europe, but also the Drôme and the Ardèche, evocative of Provence, as well as the Auvergne and its volcanoes.

The Alps

Lyon is, of course, the gateway to the Alps and its ski resorts. Let yourself be tempted by a stay in the mountains, which you can easily reach with our many modes of transport from the airport.
