Lyon and the Beaujolais vineyard Lyon fr

A two thousand year old city, situated at the junction of the Rhône and Saône rivers, Lyon rests below the impressive Fourvière and Croix Rousse hills. In Lyon, visitors can take a unique journey through time and across cultures, by strolling down its narrow streets, crossing its “traboules“ (narrow secret passages), walking along its bustling docks, passing through its impressive squares, and seeing over 200 sites illuminated at night.

Famed throughout the world, the Beaujolais wine region is home to an infinite number of treasures and flavours on the doorstep of Lyon. The Beaujolais wine route will introduce you to the richness and conviviality of the region, with its châteaux, beautiful hilly landscapes and great wines.
