Lyon Holiday Packages

Lyon holidays are about the old world and the new, with modern and efficient transportation running through the cobblestone streets of a French Renaissance neighbourhood. From atop a hill in Vieux Lyon, the city's old town, you can gaze at a sea of red roofs and the spires of the city's cathedral. Down below, enjoy rich food, served up in small, family-run eateries with changing menus that blend of flavours and cuisines. There are 2,000 years of history and culture to explore in this city, and you can do it all with Lyon holiday packages.

Things to Do in Lyon

Vieux Lyon is full of doorways off narrow streets that open up to hidden courtyards (traboules) and unexpected sights. You’ll see the Gothic beauty of the Lyon Cathedral and the ancient Manécanterie, the oldest building in Lyon. The Manécanterie is an 11th-century structure that was once part of the parish convent and is now its choir school. The Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière also has an impressive interior and affords excellent views of the city.

You can also visit the Musee des Beaux Arts, one of France's most important museums after The Louvre in Paris. You’re sure to get “wrapped up” in the Ancient Egypt mummy exhibit, plus works by Monet and Degas, among others. If you're longing for some green space, head to the huge Parc de la Tete D'Or to add some respite from the hustle and bustle of the city to your Lyon holiday. To explore surrounding towns like Bron or Villeurbanne, book one of Wotif’s car hire options in Lyon and take to the road.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Silk weaving is a traditional practice in Lyon that's become chic; check out shops in the old town for unique wares. For mainstream fashion, browse the shops on Rue de la République. Les Halles de Lyon is an indoor food market where you can indulge in the best Lyonnaise flavours.

A true Lyonnaise dining experience is eating at a bouchon, where meat-heavy meals are served in a cosy, low-key atmosphere. Foodie adventurers will rejoice: Bouchons often serve tripe, blood sausage and calf's head. If you’re not so brave, you can just “wine” about it: Two of France’s best-known wine regions are located near Lyon, so try a local red with your charcuterie.

Vieux Lyon has several pubs for a night out where you can socialise and hop from bar to bar on the cobblestone streets. There's a college-age crowd in Guillotiere and more of a late-night-cocktails scene in Place Bellecour. “The City of Lights” also has several popular nightclubs, many of which are in the Place des Terreaux district.
