AN hour-long flight is all it takes to reach the rich cultural paradise that is Lyon.
Although it’s famed for its gastronomical bravery, it’s so much more than a foodie’s dreamland – centuries of history is relived from one hidden passageway to the next.
I stayed in Staycity’s serviced apartments, which are conveniently located just a 20 minute taxi ride from the airport.
The spacious, modern apartments offer all the conveniences you could need including 24 hour reception, WiFi, fully equipped kitchens and on-site car parking.
Staycity Lyon is also just a scenic thirty-minute walk from the main city centre Bellecour and the business district Part-Dieu making it extremely easy to explore on foot.
And you’re in luck if you don’t want to walk around this gorgeous French city as it’s extremely well connected with trams, metros and bikes.
