  • We visited the Museum of the Resistance during a recent business trip to Lyon, lovely place, well worth the visit, go if you get the chance!  more »
  • It is a sadly famous, historic place. Klaus Barbie there was rampant and Jean Moulin has been jailed. Lots of photos and paper on the WWII. When we ended the cellars where the interrogations took place, we have choked.

  • Center very (too?) didactic but complete and interesting. Little suited to the younger, to consider from the age of 13 or 14.

Where to stay in Lyon

Lyon’s nine districts surround the two major rivers running through the city: the Rhône and the Saône. The most scenic districts are Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon) and La Croix Rousse, where the city’s historic sites are located. Lodging in these areas is walking distance to these sites. Near the breathtaking Parc de la Tête, the Tête D’Or district offers a quieter option away from the city center.
