Rue de la Republique, Lyon
(2.9/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our international travel planner, Lyon attractions like Rue de la Republique can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Go one way and back the other; go again and get back on the streets. Impossible to visit Lyon and not walking down the street of the Republique. Amazing the number of people, even in the cold!

  • Street with many shops open on weekends too. Is close to other attractions in this area of the city.

  • A big shopping street in the city center of Lyon. It is very nice to walk around or do some shopping.
