The Presqu'ile has everything to offer. It's the centre of the city, and is still small enough to walk everywhere. There are a number of nice squares (Bellcouer etc), and lots of stunning buildings, such as the Hotel de Ville, and the Opera House. There is plenty of restaurants, and loads of good shopping options.It's very well connected to everywhere... More

It's hard to get lost when you have a river on one side and another river on the other side. The Rhone and the Saone. Great shopping, lots of restaurants, many quite good, bars and cafes. The best area to stay in when visiting Lyon.

The architecture is llovely and there are... More

Presquile is the center city action of Lyon. All the protests, parades, activities begin and end somewhere within this section of the city. It is a walkable section with public transportation (metro or tram or bus) connecting every portion. The trendiest shopping is also found here with the designer shops and boutiques serving the shop-loving French. As for night-life, Presqu'ile... More

This area is central to all there is to see in Lyon - a great place to be based. Quite a few hotels, safe area, clean, lots of shopping and lots of very good restaurants. It's not "the" touristy area, but it gets very busy. It's only a 5-10 minute walk to Vieux Lyon. Bellecor Plaza is huge but nothing... More
