    Points of interest with a Lyon car rental

    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.
