Lyon travel tips

1) Many shops in Lyon are closed on Sundays

As well as in other French cities, groceries, retail stores, and restaurants are mostly closed on Sundays in Lyon. However, local farmers markets (marché) are open this day of the week. Besides, you can devote this day to exploring local historical and cultural landmarks. Plan your trip accordingly!

2) Explore the vineyards around Lyon

The wine areas of Beaujolais and Côtes du Rhône are just a short ride from Lyon. These green areas offer both tasteful wines and beautiful sceneries for a day retreat. Note that France has very low taxes on alcohol, so cheap French wine doesn’t mean bad French wine. Take a tour to the vineyards, shop in the wine stores and indulge your taste buds!

3) Find your train by its number at the Lyon train station

Some tourists may find boarding French trains confusing. Firstly, the platform is not specified on your ticket. It is posted on the departures list about 20 minutes before the train leaves. Secondly, the trains are listed by their numbers and termination points. As some trains have multiple stops, your destination may not be its last station. Look for your train number to identify it on the list.
