A rental car in Lyon, France is the ideal way to explore this classic city. Founded by the Romans and preserved by the French, UNESCO classifies Lyon as an archetypical French city composed of ornate architecture and monumental landmarks in Roman, Gothic, and Medieval styles. Separated into districts and bisected by the Rhone and Saone Rivers, you will discover a variety of engaging activities within the city limits, from fine dining to inspiring operas. As a food mecca, travelers from around the globe are lured to Lyon's romantic restaurants and while Lyon may not have landmarks which hold the same reputation as those in Paris, the cityscape is dotted with an array of elaborate churches, towering statues, insightful museums, and fine art galleries. Auto Europe boasts an extensive rental car fleet and offers convenient pick-up locations across the city, including the Lyon-Saint Exupery Airport.
A Lyon rental car invites travelers to be spontaneous. Explore the byways of each district and discover unexpected treasures and little-known restaurants. As a World Heritage Site, Lyon offers plenty of opportunities to uncover local history through a variety of museums and landmarks. Old Lyon provides a fascinating glimpse of intricate architecture constructed during between the 15th and 17th centuries by German, Flemish, and Italian Merchants. Restored in the 1980s, Old Lyon now provides visitors with a charming cobblestone street populated by boutiques, shops and craftsmen. The narrow peninsula known as the Presqu'ile is the site of a number of bars and nightclubs, a popular destination with both visitors and locals, but for those that prefer a peaceful walk, Lyon is home to several city parks. If time permits, take a drive northeast to enjoy a day of sightseeing in Geneva. Touring the Rhone-Alpes region in a rental car from Auto Europe is the ideal way to explore this beautiful region.
