The climate of Lyon (France)
The agglomeration of Lyon is the largest town of France except Paris and the most important town of the Rhne district. Most Dutch however know the town as an important bottle-neck of the Autoroute du Soleil on their way to the south of France, Spain or Portugal and as the town where the most important ANWB point of support is. On the way to the south it is also mostly in this environment that a significant improvement of the weather is noticeable if you have left Holland in grey and/or wet weather. Lyon has a moderate sea climate with mild winters and rather warm summers. In the late autumn you see particularly the temperatures drop rather quickly to values around or even below freezing-point. In the summer months the town is sunny, reasonably dry and rather warm. For the viniculture however there is sufficient precipitation for the grapes to grow abundantly. Of recent years the interest for Lyon as a city-tour destination has started to increase.
