Enjoy Some of The Best Places to Shop in Lyon!
The posh city of Lyon offers plenty of shopping opportunities, whether you're more interested in bringing home good food and wine or some fancy new pieces to enrich your wardrobe. From quaint malls and boutiques to colorful markets and covered galleries full of shops.
1. The Presqu'Île-Bellecour District: For Global Brands & Shops
One of Lyon's most popular shopping areas is located right in the city center, on the semi-natural "island" between the Rhone and Saone rivers, locally known as Presqu'Île. Locals flock to the boutique-filled streets that stretch from the massive Place Bellecour square and Perrache train station to the south and around Rue de la République and Cordeliers Metro station to the north. Clothing for men, women and children; sportswear; electronics; Health and Beauty; and food stores are part of the offer in the area.
For well-known global chains like H&M, Gap, Zara, and Uniqlo, take a stroll down Rue de la Republique, Rue du Président Carnot, or Rue Grolée (all near Cordeliers or Bellecour metro stations).
For luxury boutiques and designers like Hermès and Louis Vuitton, head to Rue du Président Édouard Herriot and Rue Emile Zola. Meanwhile, the Grand Hotel Dieu is a newer shopping center that is home to companies such as the luxury beauty brand Clarins and a variety of high-end food stores.
Travel Tip: To avoid the crowds, try to shop in the area during the week, close to opening hours (usually around 10 a.m.).
2. Le Village des Créateurs (Creators' Village): For Artisan Originals
If shopping on global networks is not your thing and you are more interested in finding clothing, home goods, accessories and gifts produced by local designers and artisans, Village des Créateurs (Creators' Village) is an essential stop. Located on a covered walkway in the artsy Croix-Rousse district, the "Village" is home to fashion boutiques showcasing creations by up-and-coming designers and small startups. As you browse the galleries, you will find men's and women's clothing, accessories, jewelry and decorative items, perfect for finding a unique gift.
Near the Passage Thiaffait entrance, there is also a multi-brand concept store called the Village des Créateurs Boutique (VDCB), where you can browse items from various designers and brands.
Travel Tip: During the winter (around December), the Village often opens a Christmas-themed pop-up store that is an especially useful (and attractive) destination for seasonal gifts.
3. Les Halles de Lyon-Paul Bocuse Market: For Edible Gifts
Widely regarded as one of the best indoor restaurants in the world, this huge market named after renowned chef Lyonnais Paul Bocuse is located in the trendy Part-Dieu area of the city. Rain or shine, local gourmets and visitors gather inside to browse the 48 market stalls, spread over three floors, offering everything from cheeses and cold cuts to wines, jams and pâtés.
Whether you're shopping for delicious ingredients for a picnic or a home-cooked meal in a rental apartment kitchen, this is one of the best places in town to find them. There are also several excellent bars and restaurants in and around the market, making it an even more gastronomic destination.
The market is open every day from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., except Sundays, which closes at 1:00 p.m.
Travel Tip: As the market is very close to the train station (with easy access to the airport), consider stocking up on non-perishable goodies and gifts like chocolate and wine here before catching your train or flight.
