City Trip Lyon

© Atout France/Fabian Charaffi
Located at the confluence of the Rhone and Saône rivers, Lyon is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It has been blessed with wealth since the Middle Ages, including the silk factory, and has always had a taste for life.

Seize the opportunity and take a city trip to Lyon on your next free days.

Getting there

From Geneva you only have 2 hours to get to Lyon by direct train.

The Old Town - UNESCO World Heritage Site

The old town with its picturesque alleys has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998. Just like the old town, the Traboules (secret passages), the peninsula, the Musée des Beaux-Arts and, of course, the world-famous Lyon gastronomy are all worth discovering. Lyon is the restaurant capital of France and so you can enjoy the gourmet cuisine in Lyon. For example, in the restaurant L'Auberge du Pont de collonges, the restaurant of star chef Paul Bocuse.

Trendy Lyon - La Confluence

Lyon has both a bold and a modern side. The former industrial area, which covered 150 hectares and housed factories and port facilities, has now been rebuilt. A new, trendy eco-quarter has been created. "La Confluence" with its artificial harbour basin, the 2 km long promenade on the banks of the Saône, the new living quarters and the new shopping and entertainment concept, offers a whole lot of innovation. The new quarter will be a showcase for the future. Visit the hip new quarter and form your own opinion.
