Located in the Rhone Valley between Paris and Marseille, Lyon is a popular tourist destination well known for its cuisine and contributions to the film industry. As France's second largest city, Lyon benefits from an excellent public transit system comprising buses, numerous taxis and an efficient metro system. It is also one of the busiest cities in France in terms of rail travel.
Despite this extensive inter-city transit network, getting out of downtown and travelling within the less urbanised areas can seem daunting to many visitors and is accomplished most easily with a hire car.
Lyon Saint-Exupery Airport lies 20kms east of the city. It is a busy, two terminal airport with well established transportation services for passengers needing to get not only to Lyon, but to other major cities within France. Equipped with all of the amenities guests would expect of an international travel hub, the airport offers visitors several opportunities to arrange personal transportation. Car hire agencies maintain booking counters throughout the arrivals terminal.
Due to its position in the valley and proximity to the Alps, Lyon experiences seasonal extremes. The summers are hot and humid while the winters are often harsh. Both are busy tourist periods, but the best time to visit is in early autumn. The weather remains warm and many of the most popular annual festivals are still underway. Although availability is more in the traveller's favour in autumn, advance reservations of rental vehicles is still recommended.
