About 5th district

The 5th district of Lyon represents the historical part of the city with its distinct neighborhoods such as Saint-Jean and its cathedral, Saint Paul and Saint Georges which are categorized as ‘Old city’, Saint Just, Fourvière and the Basilica which dominates and protects the city. There are still several traces of the city’s roman past, in particular the Gallo-Roman theatre. This area is very touristy and possesses an Italian renaissance feel with its passageways. It can be a very pleasant lifestyle as long as you do not mind animated nightlife or using stairs regularly as not many elevators exist in the buildings here. Also, it is easier not to have a car as parking is difficult. Check our other rooms in 5th district
