France – Historic Site of Lyon

Day trip to Lyon from Paris by train, what to see and do in a short space of time to really enjoy the gastronomic capital of France and its historic delights.

A shade under 2 hours on a fast train from Paris will bring you to the south of France and the lovely city of Lyon. The gastronomic capital of France, Lyon is a feast for the eyes, the soul and the stomach. Janine Marsh seeks out tempting visits for culture vultures and  shoppers and finds that in the old town, almost every other building seems to house a restaurant, bakery, wine bar or somewhere to tempt your taste buds.

What to do in one day in Lyon

Let’s assume you arrive in time for breakfast and will stay for an early dinner catching the 21.04 train back to Paris.

Lyon At a Glance

It’s a long walk to the old town from the station and as you’re only there for a day it’s worth taking the metro to Place Bellecour.
