Best time to visit Lyon, France?

  • The best time to visit Lyon is in the mid summer when temperatures are still warm but hotels are less expensive. During this time, expect to pay approximately $70/night for a 1-bedroom vacation rental. That's $10 cheaper than what you would have paid in June. Temperatures are in the high 70s, just a bit warmer than the average 70°F you could get during high season.
  • The most popular time to travel to Lyon is in the late spring/early summer, which comes with higher hotel rates. The Fête des Lumières week (December 7th - 11th) and the Noël week (December 23rd to January 2nd) are also popular dates that you should avoid if you're on a budget.
  • When visiting Lyon in the fall, make sure to bring your umbrella since it rains on average 14 days each month.
