Place des Jacobins

Place des Jacobins, a historical site in the heart of the tourist district. After the turmoil of the Revolution, the Place des Jacobins lost its religious identity and was very briefly renamed Place de la Fraternité. This shows the attachment of the Lyonnais to this place and the role they attributed to it in the daily life of the city. Since then, although the square has reverted to the name of Jacobins, it has nevertheless kept the quiet conviviality that has always characterized it. Situated half an hour's walk from your Première Classe Lyon Gare Part Dieu hotel, it provides you with the opportunity to explore the city from east to west, to cross the Rhône by the Wilson bridge and to finally reach the Bellecour district which is very popular with tourists. Tucked away from the square, there are some charming places such as the passage de l'Argue, the Théâtre des Célestins or Hospices civils, as well as a large number of streets with shops. Thus, with your arms full of packages and surrounded by the rich heart of the city's monuments, you will be able to take a well-deserved break at La Fontaine des Jacobins. Completed in 1885 by Gaspard André, this fountain pays homage to four prominent figures of Lyonnais art. This underlines once again the multi-faceted history of the square, which was religious and then revolutionary in the past, and artistic and tourism-oriented today.

Light Institute

Enjoy playing with image and time at the Institut Lumière. What could be more enjoyable than creating a beautiful canvas after a long day? When you visit the Institut Lumière, you will enjoy a high-quality motion picture experience. At this historic site, in the very heart of the district where an important page in the history of movie theater was written, you approach the seventh art in a completely new way. All facets are covered, thanks to the documentation center, the museum, and the art house movie theaters. But the heart of the institute is indeed in its two large-screen projection rooms. During thematic evenings based around a genre, a director or a country, you will rediscover the magic of movie theater. A magic that continues in the museum's opulent galleries where you will discover the works of the two brothers Auguste and Louis. In this bourgeois setting of the last century, the archaic cameras, the films, the autochrome plates take on a poignant dimension. This amazing place is only a few steps away from your Première Classe Lyon Gare Part Dieu hotel. A place imbued with romanticism and passion as demonstrated by the large and eclectic program of screenings and events. A place where time has stood still and turns in slow motion, as if by magic.

The Part Dieu - Business District

La Part-Dieu: THE place to live. Due to its location, its urban and commercial layout, the district of La Part-Dieu has quickly become the beating heart of Lyon. Here you will find everything that the city of Lyon has to offer. A detour starting with the Halles Bocuse will be enough to convince you. Whether you are hungry or not, this place pays homage to the many local products that have made Lyon's cuisine famous. Just a few local delicacies purchased to take away, sweet or savory depending on your taste, and you are off again on your adventure in La Part-Dieu. Near your Première Classe Lyon Gare Part Dieu hotel, you will be pleasantly surprised to find such a large selection of brands and shops. A popular meeting place for serial-shoppers, La Part-Dieu invites you to go shopping in one of the 260 stores in the shopping center. But shopping is not an end in itself, and the district allows you to quench your thirst for culture thanks to the nearby auditorium. Throughout the year, the demanding schedule delights discerning music lovers. Allow yourself a moment of respite in the green spaces that punctuate the urban landscape of La Part-Dieu. Stroll through the luxuriant parc de la Tête d'or at the end of the day and catch a glimpse of a beautiful sunset on the banks of the Rhône. It doesn't take a lot to be happy!

What to do in Lyon?

A two-day getaway to Lyon
A week-long stay in Lyon
Family vacation in Lyon
During a weekend in Lyon, get to know the city by exploring its top tourist attractions. Spend your first day discovering its architectural heritage, plenty of which is to be found in the city’s old town. Fall in love with its Renaissance lanes and passageways, and admire the colorful buildings along the banks of the Saône. Save yourself some time to linger in the city’s other historic neighborhood of Croix-Rousse. The next day, head off to tackle Fourvière hill. Not only is it a great walk, but you’ll be rewarded at the top with breath-taking views of the city. For just a two-day trip to Lyon, set up camp in a city-center Première Classe hotel.
A week-long stay is ideal for discovering the wealth of treasures that Lyon has to offer. Take a walk on the Presqu’île, the beating heart of the Rhône-Alpes capital that also happens to be full of history, shopping opportunities, and business quarters. Head to the banks of the Saône for a relaxing stroll, where you’ll be able to wander through urban landscapes, natural scenery, and modern art. Make the most of your free time with a trip to the city’s top museums, like the Musée Gadagne in its superb Renaissance home. For a longer stay in Lyon, be it for business or pleasure, check out our reasonably-priced Première Classe hotels.
Of all the feelings you’ll experience during a family stay in Lyon, boredom is definitely not one. The city’s Parc de la Tête d'or is the biggest park in Europe, and has all sorts of options on offer whether you’re looking to have some fun or sit back and relax — from merry-go-rounds and the little tourist train to the botanical garden and rose garden, or even the animals at the zoo. Next on the list is the Musée des Arts de la Marionnette, where a fun and immersive tour takes you through a vast collection of 330 puppets. Not far at all from your Première Classe Lyon Est hotel is Mini World, the biggest moving miniatures park in the world.

A juicy anecdote about Lyon

Here’s a story for you to muse on while eating your papillotes in Lyon. In 1790, a young employee at the Papillot chocolate shop fell in love with a girl in the street. To declare his affections for her, he unwrapped a few of the store’s chocolates, rewrapped them in small twists of paper upon which he wrote love notes to her, and left them on the young girl’s landing. When he saw what had happened, the boy’s boss sacked him. But the idea stuck with him, and he set to selling little quotes with his chocolates. After a stay in Lyon, continue exploring the region with our affordable Première Classe hotels in Annecy, Chambéry or Saint-Étienne.
