The 1st district of the capital of the Gauls has an ideal location, practical amenities and an environment that will leave no one indifferent. From renting a meeting room in Lyon to renting an atypical space in Lyon, the 1st arrondissement is not short of attractions!
Lyon's 1st arrondissement is made up of five main districts: Terreaux, the slopes of the Croix-Rousse, Les Chartreux, Croix-Paquet and Saint-Vincent, and covers 151 hectares. It is located on the slopes of the Croix-Rousse and on the northern part of the Presqu'île, surrounded on the west by the Saône and on the east by the Rhône. This district is bounded on the north by the Boulevard de la Croix-Rousse and on the south by the Rue Neuve. Although it is the smallest of the nine districts of the city, it enjoys a privileged location in the heart of the peninsula and remains sought after for a training room rental in Lyon, a meeting room rental in Lyon or for any other event.
The 1st arrondissement, the real historic heart of Lyon, was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998. Choosing to rent a room in Lyon in this area, which is also very popular with filmmakers and directors as a filming location in Lyon, is an opportunity to bring together professionals, employees or clients in a remarkable setting. This district has 2000 years of history that have successively marked its landscape. The past has left its mark through the amphitheatre of the Three Gauls, the convents and churches, the forts of Saint-Jean and Saint-Laurent and the many Canuts buildings, not forgetting the famous traboules... It is not surprising that this area is one of the most sought-after filming locations in Lyon for film and television professionals.
The 1st arrondissement of Lyon is marked by the presence of the Town Hall, one of the most beautiful and imposing historical buildings in the city, located between the Place des Terreaux and the Place de la Comédie. The public sector also asserts its presence with the establishment of the DRAC (Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs).
Although it is true that the 1st arrondissement is no longer the only decision-making centre in Lyon since the development of the Part-Dieu business district, it remains a key site in the agglomeration for business activities, particularly with the presence of the tertiary sector, which has been strengthened over time by the creation of numerous service companies or companies dedicated to the financial and insurance sectors.
In this historic district, residential buildings have been transformed into comfortable offices. These buildings with a remarkable cachet also house beautiful and spacious meeting rooms connected, Lyon seminar room, modern and bright workspaces, showrooms and reception areas that can accommodate up to 50 participants and more, all available for rent for as long as you wish.
For your coworking spaces, bright and quiet apartments are also available in the 1st district near the Bellecourt district. Are you looking for an atypical or even unusual space in Lyon to carry out a professional activity in complete tranquillity? A large loft on the slopes of the Croix Rousse (5 minutes walk from the Place des Terreaux) with an unobstructed view of Lyon could be a great place to rent as a training room in Lyon, for a coworking space or why not as a perfect location for filming in Lyon!
Do you want to organize a meeting or a company event in Lyon? Are you looking for a conference room in Lyon? The business real estate in the 1st arrondissement also benefits from the creation of numerous public underground car parks (Hôtel de Ville, Opéra, Terreaux...) which meet the need for parking and make up for the lack of surface spaces. Your clients or employees coming by car will have no problem parking!
In the heart of the city and with a dense network of public transport, the 1st arrondissement benefits from an exceptional location with ideal access by bus (lines 9- C13- C14-C3 and C5), by metro (line A) or by tram (Lyon Saint-Paul / Saint-Bel).
To access a seminar room in Lyon in the 1st district, we note the presence of the new Rhône Express tramway which makes it possible to reach the city centre and the nearby Lyon Part-Dieu station from Lyon-Saint Exupéry airport in only 30 minutes.
Lyon's 1st arrondissement, which borders the 2nd arrondissement, benefits from the commercial attractiveness brought by the proximity of the Confluence business district where a large number of offices are also located.
The famous Place des Terreaux, which was once the heart of administrative life, is connected to the rest of the Presqu'ile by shopping streets. Numerous shops, particularly fashion ones, have forged the identity of the 1st arrondissement, notably thanks to the lively streets of Rue de la République and Rue Edouard Herriot, which extend into the 2nd arrondissement. There is a strong dynamic around fashion with the "fashion village", a business incubator that brings together no less than forty brands. The 1st arrondissement is therefore a key area for renting a room in Lyon to organize a fashion event.
Lyon 1st is also renowned for being a lively district where it is good to relax, marked by the presence, in addition to many shops, of bars and restaurants. Today, it is a remarkable place to live, with its many cafés and sunny terraces. People attending a training course, seminar or any other event can therefore easily have lunch or dinner just a stone's throw from a conference room in Lyon or a training room rental in Lyon. For the comfort of trainees, there are also a dozen hotels of varying standards, most of which are located around the Place des Terreaux.
Choosing the 1st arrondissement of Lyon to rent a training room in Lyon, a meeting room in Lyon or to rent a space for showrooms is particularly judicious. Indeed, this historic area is home to a unique architectural heritage with monuments that attract many visitors.
Among the most popular tourist sites are the traboules circuit of the Croix-Rousse slopes and the Canuts wall. The influence of the 1st arrondissement is also due to the presence of renowned cultural establishments, such as the Fine Arts Museum located in the Palais Saint-Pierre, the Trois Gaules amphitheatre, the magnificent Lyon Opera House and of course the emblematic Place des Terreaux. So why not combine business with pleasure? Professionals always appreciate relaxing in the evening with a few cultural visits to complete and end a working day. Culture lovers can thus meet up in the many café-theatres on the slopes of the Croix-Rousse or visit a few art galleries.
