Lyon’s Bridges

Two rivers run through the centre of Lyon, the Rhône and the Saône. Living between the two rivers means our outings generally take us over a bridge.

The bridges in Lyon are not only practical, they are also beautiful. They have been built at different times throughout the city’s history, and each has its own unique character.
