Presqu’ile is the peninsula that lies at the heart of Lyon, France. Surrounded by the flowing waters of the Rhone and the Saone, it is home to magnificent heritage buildings dating from the 17th and 18th centuries, such as the Hotel de Ville (City Hall) and Palais de la Bourse. Rue de la Republique is principal shopping street in Presqu-ile and offers numerous trendy shops and eateries to pass away the time. Nineteenth-century Haussmann-style buildings and long straight avenues make for a picturesque stroll through the peninsula, which is just a five-minute walk across the bridge from Old Lyon.

  • Visit the Place des Terreaux, where heads were once chopped during the French Revolution, and now features a grand fountain designed by Frédéric Bartholdi, the architect behind the Statue of Liberty.
  • Catch a performance by the Opéra National de Lyon or attend a ballet or classical music concert at the 19th century Nouvel Opera House on Place de la Comédie.
  • Explore the Place Bellecour, a vast public square that is a popular gathering spot in Lyon close to many designer shops and is host to concerts, events, and a seasonal ice rink and Ferris wheel.

Presqu'île is easy to get to by public transport. From the Lyon Saint Exupéry Airport, visitors can take the Rhone Express train to the Par Dieu station, transfer to the metro to get to Bellecour station. Metro lines A and D stop at Bellecour, and line A also stops at Hotel de Ville, Cordeliers Bourse, Ampere - Victor Hugo, and Parrache. There is also a train station at Parrache, as well as tram stops for the T1 and T2. Trams have priority at traffic lights, so do not be alarmed as the tram breezes through them.
