Attractions near the Grand Hotel Des Terreaux
The treasures of La Croix-Rousse
Lyon’s northern hillside district of La Croix-Rousse forms part of the city’s World Heritage-listed site. Originally known as the ‘working hill’, La Croix-Rousse was once home to the city’s silk weavers and their workshops.
The steep streets and stepped corridors provide beautiful vistas over the historic city centre below. Discover the famous covered passageways called traboules, once used to transport silk from the workshops to textile merchants in the streets below. The most popular is Passage Thiaffait, which has been restored to its former glory and transformed into a vibrant hub of creative art, fashion and jewellery designers.
Visit Cotes Du Rhone wine region
Follow the Rhone River south from Lyon as it winds through the long valley toward the Mediterranean. This valley is known as one of France’s most-popular wine regions. Renowned for its rich reds and subtle white wines in the upper region, and lighter flavours in the lower region, Cotes du Rhone offers a variety of tastes to rival Burgundy and Bordeaux.
Many companies provide wine tasting tours from Lyon or you can hire a car to meander through the picturesque vineyards at your own pace. Enjoy the peace of the rolling green hills and feel free to pack a picnic to enjoy on the banks of the river.
