We know, geography isn't everyone's strength. If you're not sure where Lyon is situated, you'd be wise to learn about its location before you venture out the door!
Lyon sits 150 miles (241 kilometers) to the west of Turin, a notable city.
Enjoy meeting the locals on vacation? This corner of Rhone boasts a population of around 470,000 residents.
So many things to do and so little time. If you want to discover what the city has to offer, add Lyon Opera and the Roman Theatres of Fourviere to your travel itinerary. If you have an extra day to spare, try to stop by the Eurexpo Lyon and Bellecour Square as well.
Pick a good vantage point and observe the day's activities pass you by at Terreaux Square. If you're in the mood to socialize, this time-worn gathering point is also the perfect spot to hang out with fellow travelers and locals. Like some more ideas? Many major policies have been negotiated at Lyon City Hall. Admire it from afar or close up on an open day or a tour. But that's not all. Used for worship and quiet prayer, St. Jean Cathedral is a significant holy landmark. That being said, you need not be the church-going type to visit this peaceful place.
Flying into Lyon Bron Airport (LYN)? After you've jumped off the plane and collected your belongings, the center of Lyon will be only 6 miles (10 kilometers) to the northwest from here.
