Holidays in Lyon

This area is populated by about 470,000 people.

It is situated 390 kilometres southeast of the country's capital, Paris, and 14 kilometres northwest of Mions.

If you're travelling with the whole family, trips to Le Hameau Duboeuf and Espace Baignade Les Cascades should definitely put smiles on everyone's faces! Young ones still bouncing off the walls? Keep the excitement rolling with a visit to Waves Aquatic Centre and Salva Terra.

Get acquainted with the critters of the deep blue sea at Lyon Aquarium and Aquarium du Grand Lyon.

Meet some incredible animals and learn about the need to protect our environment on a family outing to the Touro Parc.

If you're a wine enthusiast, don’t miss the opportunity to indulge your palate at the E. Guigal and the Domaine George Vernay. The Earl Frederic Trichard Winery and the Domaine Regis Descotes are two other popular stops where you'll get a deeper knowledge of the area’s wine industry.

To get into the festive spirit, make your way to the Casino Lyon Pharaon or the Casino Le Lyon Vert. Play some cards or simply wander around and soak in the sparkling lights and electric atmosphere.

Unfurl your blanket and watch the clouds tumble by at an urban oasis like Tete d'Or Park and Popy Park. If you're after more options, stake out the best spot and let the afternoon pass lazily by at Parc de la Tête d'Or or Le Jardin Des Chartreux.

When was the last time you really engaged with Mother Nature? With no Instagram, Twitter or even Facebook? If you can't remember when, log off and get back to basics at Ile Barbe.

Whether you'd like to expand your knowledge or just unwind in the peaceful surroundings, the Musee Lumiere and the Textile Museum should do the job. Remember to look into special happenings! The Claude Bernard Museum and Mur du Cinéma are also top choices for museum buffs.

Ignite your curiosity with a trip to the Musee de Sciences biologiques Docteur Merieux, where you'll be surrounded by the latest in science technology and innovation.

Build on your knowledge of the natural world when you make the trip to the Roman Theatres of Fourviere and the Confluence Museum. With so many amazing things packed into the display cabinets, you might not know where to start! To uncover more of the earth's many creations, continue onwards to the Espace Pierres Folles et son musee and the Musée de la Civilisation Gallo-Romaine.

With such a variety of impressive art exhibitions to consider, you might need a gentle push in the right direction. We suggest picking up a coffee and making your way to the Musee d'Art Contemporain or the Lyon Museum of Fine Arts. More one-of-a-kind canvases and splendid sculptures can be found at the Musee Paul Dini and the Musee Theatre Guignol.

Take a step back through time and learn about the events and people that have contributed to this region at the Gallo-Roman Museum and the Lyon History Museum (Musee Historique de Lyon). You can also find fascinating displays which endeavour to bring history to life at the Centre d'Histoire de la Resistance et de la Deportation and the Geriatric Hospital of Charpennes.

Gain a deeper understanding of times gone by at Lyon City Hall and the Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon. Why not also swing by Lyon Courthouse and the Maison des Canuts?

Take an excursion to Fort Bron, a complex that once played a crucial defence role, and picture the battles that its historic walls encountered centuries ago.

If you find it difficult keeping up with the Joneses, consider for a second the neighbours of Palais Saint-Pierre. The grand surrounds and beautiful interior of this palace would be impossible to top!

Thick stone walls, picturesque grounds and a majestic ambience — what more could you need to capture that perfect postcard snap? Prepare yourself for a royal photo shoot at Chateau of Flecheres or Chateau de Jarnioux.

Learn more about the area's religious beliefs at St. Jean Cathedral and Notre Dame Basilica. Want an even deeper look into Lyon's spiritual identity? Continue on to Sainte Marie de la Tourette and Eglise de Belleville.

They're unlikely to be on the front cover of the inflight magazine, but the Genas Karting and Windmill of Les Thorins are still well worth a peek. The Hippodrome Bron-Parilly and Yzeron Aventure also offer a great day out.
