Find the not to be missed sights of Lyon
Inaugurated at the end of 2014, the musée des Confluences is one of those essential cultural institutions in Lyon. It is impossible to go to the capital of Gaul without planning a trip to the musée des Confluences, in the district of the same name, south of the peninsula. Not far from your hotel Kyriad Lyon Sainte Foy, you are in a building defined by a philosophy of meeting and its taste for exchange. Architecturally strong, original and conceptual, the building is designed by the Austrian architectural agency Coop Himmelb(l)au, with the aim of questioning the complexity of the world and spreading knowledge. Surrounded by other atypical buildings, you understand how Lyon is an innovative city in the field of architecture. Wander through its 22,000m² area that makes it the museum of heritage. You will appreciate the 2.2 million objects gathered through vast collections of natural and human history. Thanks to its permanent exhibition covering 3,000m², you will relive the great stages of humanity, staged by four different scenographies: origins, different living species, societies and eternity. A whole program that is accompanied by live shows and, of course, guided tours for a more in-depth meeting with the museum. There’s plenty to quench your thirst for knowledge.
By visiting the historic center of Lyon, rue de la Charité, near the famous Place Bellecour, you have no trouble finding the musée des Tissus et des Arts décoratifs. Located near your Kyriad hotel, this splendid cultural complex is an establishment for the less iconic in the heart of the Lyonnais. The simple fact of exploring these two contiguous mansions, masterpieces of bourgeois architecture, is enough to take you into the corridors of time; especially as you discover here one of the largest textile collections in the world with 2.5 million pieces. Retrace the great periods of our history through beautiful productions. From the dawn of humanity to our time, through ancient Egypt and oriental tapestries, it is a poignant reflection of our evolution that you contemplate here. Through the musée des Arts décoratifs, it is an extension of this silky universe that you learn about. With the initial desire to promote the decorative richness and know-how of Lyon, the walls of the hotel Lacroix-Laval opened to decorative objects coming from all backgrounds. A parade of medieval China, Scandinavian porcelain, bas-relief in marble: figures and fashion revolve in these places.
Nothing like a little culture break to relax, once the day is over. Head through the doors of your Kyriad hotel to discover a temple dedicated to refinement and art: the Lyon Opera House. Whether you go there for a drink under the arcades bar Le Peristyle to attend a ballet, the pleasure will be at the rendezvous. Especially as the image of architecture combining modernity and classicism, Lyon Opera opens to many genres; evidenced by its eclectic programming. Jazz, world music, classical ballets, recitals, operas, chamber music: all styles are in the spotlight here. Are you curious? That does not matter since the opera organizes throughout the year meetings with the professionals and actors of its walls. Around a conference or musical meetings, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the topics. Also enjoy ballet rehearsals, open to the public, to observe the muffled footsteps of dancers. An unforgettable moment of grace with the spectacular glass dome enthroned on the opera. The dome was designed by Jean Nouvel and dominates the charming white place of Comedy since 1993. You just have to work your aria now!
A weekend in Lyon inevitably will bring you to one of the many museums scattered between the Saône and the Rhône. The latest addition, the Musée des Confluences is worth the detour, both for its architecture as well as its vast collection of fossils. Transform your trip to Lyon into a tranquil journey through the landscapes marked by fields of lavender and the mountains of La Drôme. Book a room now in one of our Kyriad hotels in Valence!
