We will be in Lyon for a wedding in early October. We will be arriving from Paris around 1200h Thursday and spending the afternoon and evening in Lyon (Mercure Beaux Arts). Sometime Friday afternoon, after some exploring, we will be picking up the car and driving to Le Perreon for the weekend festivities. As we are flying out early Monday morning (7am), I would like to spend Sunday driving to Perouges and then back to Lyon for late afternoon and dinner, then off to bed. I'm looking for a reasonable priced and clean hotel west of city center that will also have a metro to take to Vieux Lyon, but not too far that our Monday morning drive is hectic. Since we will likely leave around 5, I don't anticipate much traffic??
Alternatively,...I was wondering if it would be more practical, instead, to drop off car on Sunday and take taxi to airport on Monday? I have not yet booked our car arrangements. It looks like some car rental agencies are not open on Sunday, however.
Any insight is greatly appreciated!!
