Built between the Saône, Rhône, and Beaujolais rivers, Lyon has been a thriving city for over two centuries. And with an ever-changing urban landscape, there is never a dull moment in the city of “canuts” (silk workers)!
The Lyon Saint-Exupéry airport is around 25km east of Lyon. To get to the city centre, take the TCL 47 bus service, which should get you there in 30 minutes.

What Lyon has to offer?
A ‘Capital’ City (well, sort of)
Even though Paris has taken its spot, Lyon has always seen itself as a bit of a capital. Capital of the Gauls, Resistance, pharmaceutical industry, food, and now football Lyon certainly is a European capital thanks to its geographical location.
Industry, industry, industry!
But Lyon is not just a beautiful tourist destination. With its booming industry, the city attracts just as many entrepreneurs as tourists.
From the Traboules Passageways to the beautiful buildings in the old city, the tourist attractions are endless! Along the way, you'll probably end up stopping for a snack in a 'bouchon' (a bistro café).
