Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
After Paris and Marseille, Lyon is the third largest city in France and it’s got plenty to keep visitors entertained. From its unique architecture and its gastronomic delights to the surrounding region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and the many architectural landmarks that are in the city, it’s the kind of place that caters to all kinds of visitors.
Just tipping over the 2,200,000 mark, the population of Lyon’s metropolitan area is the second biggest after Paris. Locals are called Lyonnais and, as is the case with most French citisens, they take great pride in their nation and their city.
If you’re flying into Lyon direct, you’ll land at Lyon–Saint-Exupéry Airport, which was previously known as Lyon Satolas Airport. With an average passenger count of 8,562,298 passing through its three terminals every year, it’s an important hub that services the whole Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.
The airport is situated 20 kilometres or 13 miles southeast of the city centre so getting to your accommodation in the city will take some planning. For affordable airport transfers in Lyon, RentABus.com has you covered.
We’ll take you from the arrivals hall to your hotel, hostel, apartment or home in one of our comfortable vehicles. You’ll have a driver waiting for you upon your arrival and you won’t have to worry about figuring out the public transport system – we make Lyon airport transfers easy.
While we did mention that Lyon is known for its gastronomic delights, what we didn’t mention is that it’s the gastronomic capital of France. Yes, the food is that good so arrive on an empty stomach.
Lyon is the home of nouvelle cuisine and it’s where the much-celebrated bouchon also originated. Take a stroll through the beautiful side streets of the Old Town (which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and it won’t be long before the aroma of delicious foods being prepared distracts you.
You can expect most dishes to be meat-heavy, although quenelles (pike dumplings) are a real standout star in the city’s culinary show. The local cheese, ‘fromage dangereux’, takes two years to mature and you better not leave the city without sampling this speciality.
There are so many great cafes and restaurants in the city of Lyon and if you want to eat at the crème de la crème during your stay, we recommend you make reservations in plenty of time.
Making your reservations won’t be an issue as one of our Lyon RentABus drivers will ensure that you get to your dining spots on time, every time.
