To get a real feel for the various sights, sounds and textures of Lyon, pull on some comfortable shoes and explore surrounding areas like Lyon, Bron, and Villeurbanne.
Miribel offers some interesting museums, exhibits and show venues nearby that allow visitors to really get a feel for the area. In particular, you should make sure you check out the Lyon History Museum, Musee Lumiere and the Lyon Museum of Fine Arts. Go and see a live show at Guignol Theater, the Maison de la Danse and theatre des Celestins. Aspiring artists should admire the exhibits at the Musee d'Art Contemporain.
There are many picturesque outdoor attractions here as well so don’t miss the nearby green spaces. There are some nice family parks, so why don’t you go out and enjoy the Tete d'Or Park.
If you could do with a spot of retail therapy, amble through the many stores at the Part Dieu Mall.
At the end of a day enjoying the charms of Miribel, put up your feet and relax in one of the area’s popular bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments. For a good night’s sleep it’s hard to go past the Mercure Lyon La Part Dieu, the Park & Suites Prestige Lyon Part Dieu, and the Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette.
