Explore the Magnificent City of Lyon

On your motorhome journey starting from our Décines-Charpieu agency, a first stop at Lyon, the prefecture of the Rhône, is a must. Why not start with Fourvière hill and its impressive panoramic view? In addition to discovering the entire city, if the weather permits, you may be able to see the Mont-Blanc, the legendary summit of the Alps. Other choice sites also deserve a visit during your road trip in Lyon: Place des Terreaux and its impressive National Opera, the Place Bellecour, very lively even at night, the Célestins Theater, as well as beautiful green spaces including the Parc de la Tête d'Or.

On the banks of the Saône, France's second city is renowned for its gastronomy, notably its famous Bouchons Lyonnais. These small restaurants are, according to the locals, the ideal place to enjoy the city's tasty specialties during your road trip in Lyon. What's on the menu for your 100% Lyonnaise culinary experience? Pork grattons, Lyon sausages with pistachios, or even tablier de sapeur.
