Explore Lyon

Lyon, also written Lyons, is the city of both the Rhône département and the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in east-central France. It is situated on a hill at the junction of the Rhône and Saône rivers. It is France’s third biggest metropolis, after Paris and Marseille.

The ideal time to explore Lyon for pleasant weather is mid-spring to late fall. The days are warm, and even in the summer, the city is rarely oppressively moist. Don’t go from June to August if you want to avoid crowds.
