The 2nd arrondissement is in the heart of the city and the metropolis of Lyon, dynamic from an economic and cultural point of view.

The heritage of the 2nd arrondissement reflects the different periods and partly tells the story of Lyon. It is an integral part of the World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1998, and is waiting to be (re) discovered.

 

Walking along the Presqu’île, along the Cordeliers, Bellecour and Perrache disctricts, sometimes Saône and Rhone side, discover the history of the city through the beautiful buildings and monuments that line these neighborhoods.

Théâtre des Célestins, Place Bellecour, Basilique d'Ainay ... and local history museums around printing, textiles and decorative arts ...

Between two visits, let yourself be tempted by some shopping and treats.
