Rue de la Republique, Lyon

Stroll, shop, and see the first Haussman-style buildings on Rue de la Republique, a 19th-century pedestrian zone and World Heritage Site. Luxury boutiques and inexpensive retailers line the street, which is a hub of activity for both locals and visitors. Look for the Cinéma Pathé, a rare example of Art Deco architecture in the city. The Fnac Bellecour headquarters was once the main branch of the newspaper "Le Progres," but the building was originally designed as a theater.

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.
