Here’s some essential information for campervan travellers in Lyon
If you want to hire a campervan or motorhome in Lyon, we’re here for you - right next to the airport! We’ll meet you at Lyon’s Saint-Exupéry Airport and take you to our depot, located 10 minutes away from the Airport in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, where you will pick up your RV. On return, we’ll drive you back to the airport - everything free of charge in regular hours, of course!
Parking in the inner city is not easy. The best option is to park your campervan at Parc Relais (on the outskirts of the city) during the day and then take the metro to the city centre (it’s not allowed to leave your motorhome or campervan there during the night). During the night it’s free to park the van in the city centre.
Near Lyon there are a few camping sites to consider. Camping de Lyon is a bit far away from the city centre, but nothing that public transportation can’t cover. If you want to stay even further away from the city, there’s Camping Sonnay, but from there you’ll need your campervan to get to the city centre.
The city where the cinema was invented is also the big screen where top French restaurants, modern architecture and more than 2000 years of history play the main role.
Lyon is the road trip stop that will blow away your expectations. But what to expect in the first place? The city that sits along not one, but two major rivers owes a lot of riches to the Rhône and Saône. Rivers aside, the city’s flow will overwhelm you, giving you a feeling of novelty while it makes you live more than 20 centuries of history. And if the ancient history doesn’t feed your mind, the top French restaurants, or Bouchon, will feed your body and soul! To top that off, this is where the cinema was invented – Cinema lovers, you’ll find a few museums to be passionate about! That said, hire a campervan and hit the road to the wildest and most fearless city in France: the lion city aka Lyon!
