Lyon is the third largest city in France and draws in many visitors every year for its cultural, historical and gastronomical offerings. Originally founded by the Romans, Lyon has become a UNESCO listed city with its many preserved historical sites. Old Lyon, near the right bank of the Saone river, has one of the largest Renaissance areas in Europe. The lively district of Presqu'ile offers shops, clubs and restaurants where you can sample the authentic 'salad lyonnaise' and French pastries, and the Fourvière basilica and its hilltop views should not be missed. A rental car also offers you the opportunity to travel outside the city and make a road trip to see vineyards, lakes and any of the eight national parks in the Rhone-Alpes region. Let Sixt help you have a comfortable trip with a top quality car rental from Lyon St. Exupéry Airport!
