airbnb Lyon 2nd Arrondissement, France

Skip the tourist hotspot and live like a local in France. The city of Lyon commands a strategic spot at the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône Rivers. It is hailed as a supreme rival of the popular destination, Paris, with its unmatched sophistication that makes it enticing to travelers. Outstanding museums, dynamic cultural life, clubbing scenes and a thriving shopping district are just among the many qualities of the third largest city in France. If you are a lover of wine, as most people in France, Lyon is the gateway to the Beaujolais viticultural region, where whispering vineyards speak into your ear. During the warmer months, enjoy several outdoor music festivals showcasing a wide range of music varieties including Lou Reed, Sting, and Bjork: just to name a few. Although Paris has been in many movies including Moulin Rouge and Amelie, Lyon is said to have invented the movies with Louis Lumiere credited for creating the first film camera in 1892. Visit the Lyons Institut Lumiere, to pay tribute. We mustn’t forget the food, Lyon is famous for its culinary scene with restaurants like L'Auberge du Pont de Collonges, a fabled temple of Gallic gastronomy which has three Michelin stars and overseen by masters of the craft. Instead of pouring thousands to stay in Paris, opt in for a stay in Lyon for the majority of your trip for a true local French experience. Choose from some of the top Airbnb vacation rentals in 2nd Arrondissement, Lyon.
