Sorted by popularity:

The city of Lyon is roughly 470 km away from the better known capital of Paris. It is a perfect place to go on holiday because it's very accessible and visitor friendly. There are a lot of things to do and places to visit for people who are looking for something other than the beach, such as cultural sites, museums and ample shopping places.

It is summer in Lyon and the daytime temperature evens out at about 26°C (79°F). It's a perfect temperature for going around the city on foot or on bicycle.

In the evening, temperatures can get as low as 14°C (57°F) and there might be a sudden cool front so guests should pack a cardigan or light jacket.

Precipitation averages out to around 89mm or about 3 ½ inches across the month. There are roughly 10 or 11 days that see some rain but overall visitors can expect to experience up to 11 hours of sunshine per day.

Lyon may be the most overlooked French city in terms of tourism. Most people only stay for a night or two while passing through to other destinations but they are missing out on the great things to do here!

The first thing to see is the Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls followed by Théâtres Romains de Fourvière. These two sights alone would make the trip to Lyon worth it. They are both ancient Roman ruins dating back to 19 A.D. and are both historical sites of great significance.

Tours are given at each site daily and can be arranged quite easily through most hotels. The walking tours are perfect for the weather in August.

The ResidHotel Lyon Part-Dieu is a great spot for holiday travellers on a tight budget. While the hotel is not as close to everything as some others may be, it is right near the rail station so travel about the city is exceptionally easy. The amenities are good and there is free Wi-Fi. Most suites have a kitchenette.
