The city plans to reinforce the bridges between Lyon and Saint-Etienne along A47, meaning that you can expect congestion along this route and its connecting roads. You can drive over an hour to the neighbouring Vichy city to appreciate some history and collections at the Musee des Art d'Afrique et d'Asie. Lyon city rentals permit you to take your friends almost two hours away to Chalon-sur-Saone for an educational and memorable tour around the vineyards while satisfying your palate with some fine wine. The town is highly walkable, with efficient access to stores and eateries within the center.

International drivers can also utilise their driving licenses without an International Driving Permit (IDP).
