Lyon Rugby Village – Information and access
Lyon offers all the charm of the French way of life in a human-sized city listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Between the Rhône and Saône rivers, the city is at the confluence of winegrowing and gourmet regions that have made its gastronomic reputation.
From Michelin-starred restaurants to trendy new venues and creative young chefs, you'll be amazed by the diversity offered in Lyon.
UNESCO SITE OF LYON
Classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998, the historic city of Lyon takes you on a trip to discover more than 2,000 years of history. Founded by the Romans on the Fourvière hill, the city can be seen from the panoramic view of the Fourvière basilica. On the banks of the Saône, the Vieux-Lyon unveils the richness of Renaissance mansions and the famous traboules, typical Lyonnais passageways. The Croix-Rousse hill perpetuates the heritage of the "Canuts", Lyon's silk workers, and opens the doors of its weaving workshops. Between the Rhône and Saône rivers, the 19th-century boulevards of the Presqu'île are the perfect place to stroll among stores, squares, fountains and monuments.

LYON FROM ITS WATERWAYS
Designed and built around the Rhône and Saône rivers, Lyon is one of the only cities in the world to have two rivers meet in the city center. The banks of the river are ideal for strolling and discovering Lyon's treasures walking or by bike. Lively in the sunny days, the banks of the Rhône are ideal for a drink on the terrace of a barge. A more bucolic walk along the Saône is ideal for daydreaming.
Take a cruise and retrace the history of Lyon from a whole new angle!
