Lyon is divided into nine arrondissement, or districts, each of which have their own distinct character. Take a look at apartments in between the two rivers of Le Rhône and La Saône - this is the Presqu'île, the heart of the city. It extends from the foot of the Croix-Rousse hill and is packed with everything for the perfect city break from independent shops to cafes and restaurants, all wrapped up in stunning architecture. North of Presqu'île sits the district of Croix-Rousse, on the hill that was originally home to the city’s silk workers. History is everywhere on the maze of sloping streets, including the maze of traboules or passageways that were used to transport the silk and later used by the French resistance during WW2. Cross over the Rhône for apartments in the Brotteaux district - Lyon’s wealthiest area which borders the lovely Tête d'Or park. Just south sits the district of Guillotière, which is less expensive and has a vibrant multicultural atmosphere.
