Steps Away From Lyon Attractions

Villa Florentine is a beautiful hotel that resides on the hillside in Old Lyon, 12 miles from the Lyon–Saint Exupéry Airport. Each morning you’ll be greeted with breathtaking views, and you’ll have easy access to all that Lyon has to offer. Renowned restaurants, classic cathedrals, and historic sites are only steps away from this luxury hotel.

Revel in Roman History and Renaissance Architecture

Fourviere Hill is home to some of Lyon's oldest buildings. This area is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, meaning that almost everywhere you look will contain a depth of historical and cultural significance. Begin your day soaking up what is left of the great Roman Empire with a trip to the Theatres Romains de Fourviere. Admission is free and the site has been well restored. Close by is the Basilique Notre-Dame de Fourviere, which offers incredible architectural views on the outside and beautiful artwork within.

Once you’ve had your fill of history, take a break to fill your stomach in the gastronomy capital of the world. Cafe Restaurant de la Mairie offers affordable French cuisine in a casual atmosphere, but while you're in France, you shouldn't feel bad about splurging on at least one meal: Miraflores offers a fine dining experience to remember, and Les Loges also offers exceptional food and a great atmosphere.

Hillside Haven in Lyon

This historic hotel offers modern conveniences and extravagant touches to make your stay a memorable one. Rooms range from Classic to the Medici suite, which includes a panoramic view across Lyon. Rooms are thoughtfully appointed with flat-screen television, mini-bar, and sound-proof windows to ensure you get a good night’s rest. You’ll stay connected and be able to plan your trip easily with complimentary Wi-Fi.

Take in the amazing views with a dip in the hotel pool, or gaze down upon Lyon at the hotel’s fine dining restaurant. End a long day with a glass of wine at the hotel bar, or take advantage of the spa and wellness center at this 17th-century villa.

The Bottom Line

This hotel is more expensive than its down-the-hill neighbor, Le Phenix Hotel; however, if staying in a luxury hotel is a must on your vacation, you could do far worse than the Villa Florentine. The awe-inspiring views, museum-like grounds, and lavish touches will make you feel like royalty.
