A historic and gastronomic city that's home to an array of excellent cultural attractions, Lyons is truly a gem in France. The location in the gorgeous Rhone-Alpes region only adds to its awesomeness.You'll be wined and dined for sure, and you'll ultimately fall in love. That may make it hard to leave, and that's perfectly fine. Seeing early traces of the Roman city of Lugdunum, walking through the cobblestone streets of Old Lyon—a fascinating Renaissance district—partying in Croix-Rousse district, and countless other activities ensure you'll stay busy and happy for a while. All that sounds splendid, doesn't it? Look for Lyon flights landing at Lyon-Saint Exupery Airport (LYS) to get you here.
What's nice about LYS is that it's only 15 miles from the city, so even a hotel in Lyon by the airport puts you in a good position to explore the city. Be aware of that as you look for deals on airfare to Lyon. When you do land in town, figure out how you'll get downtown. The most hassle-free mode of transportation from Lyon-Saint Exupery Airport is to take the tram-train line known as the Rhonexpress; to reach the boarding area, follow the red signs on the arrivals level after landing. To hail a taxi, all you have to do is walk outside Terminal 1 and wait in the designated zone for one to arrive. Rental cars are another option; to book and pick up a car, take a shuttle from the ground level of Terminal 2 to the rental car facility. If you're heading to a mountain resort in the Rhone-Alpes region, not the city, know there are tickets available for shuttle buses in the central area of the airport.
