Flights to Lyon

Fly to Lyon and discover the real culinary capital of France. With over 2,000 years of history, a city break to Lyon gives you choice between the Renaissance grandeur of its Vieux Lyon quarter, the steep passageways of its Croix-Rousse silk weavers’ district and the elegant boulevards and chic restaurants and bars of the Brotteaux neighbourhood.

Flights to Lyon also bring you very close to some of the most beautiful parts of rural France. The medieval walled city of Pérouges is just beyond the city, while the Alps and the lakeside resort of Annecy are less than two hours drive away. The stark Forez range of the Massif Central Mountains is well off the beaten track and under an hour’s drive to the west.
