Flights to Lyon: practical information

Cheap airlines to Lyon

When you work hard and look forward to spending a holiday away, where do you dream of going? From London, the world is at your fingertips, so why not explore?

Experience Lyon: what to see, what to do

Lyon doesn't boast the same world-famous monuments as Paris but you will be charmed by this city the moment you arrive. It has vibrant and diverse neighbourhoods, is an excellent walking city and is a gem for architecture fanatics.

Essentials in Lyon

Wall murals: There are more than 100 trompe-l'oeils painted on the city's wall, can you spot them or are you fooled by their cunning resemblance to something else? They're the best in Europe so grab a mural map and see if you can find them all!

City sights: The classics include the Fouvière basilica, exploring the streets in Vieux Lyon, enjoying a picnic lunch in Parc de la Tête d'Or and exploring the Musées Gadagne.

Traboules: Explore secret Lyon through its passageways and courtyards in Old Lyon. Exceptionally nice is the one that links 54 rue St Jean to 27 rue du Boeuf. Some aren't open all hours and even if you visit early morning, best to keep your voice down as the sound carries very well in the tunnels.
