PARC OL, LYON

OL-Angers Groupama Stadium 11 rugby World Cup

How to get there:

Just like was said for Saint-Etienne, the train station Gare de Lyon and the Saint-Exupery

airport are both easy to get to and from. You can get on the Rhonexpress to go straight into

the centre.

Where the rugby’s happening:

The rugby is taking place at the Parc OL, a new stadium built in 2016 and with a capacity of

59 000 people. It’s home to the Lyon football team and was built for the 2016 European

Championships in France. It also welcomed the European Champions Cup final in the same

year.

Where to get some beers:

In summer, Lyon’s population flocks to gather along the Rhone to drink on the various bars

and beer gardens. Star Ferry beer garden is up there with the most popular spots and sells

burgers and beers from all over the world. You could also head to La Grooverie for a retro

and soulful décor.

What to visit whilst I’m there:

Lyon is one of the most beautiful places in France and just walking around the centre will be

a great activity, but the Musée des Confluences is a crazy piece of architecture that is well

worth a visit. You could also go up to the Fourvière hill to see the beautiful city in all its

glory.
