The Rugby World Cup attracts many visitors to Lyon. To ensure a safe and enjoyable stay in the city, here are a few practical tips to keep in mind.


As in all major cities, it’s important to remain vigilant in Lyon, especially in high-traffic areas such as public transport and tourist attractions. Avoid displaying valuables in public, and always keep an eye on your belongings.

Pickpockets can be active in crowds, so keep your wallet and phone safe. Don’t accept unsolicited help with your luggage or tickets, as this can be a tactic used by pickpockets.


In France, service is included in the restaurant bill. However, it’s customary to leave a small tip if you’ve appreciated the service. A tip of 1 to 2 euros for a meal is generally sufficient.

Local customs and traditions

The Lyonnais are known for their pride in their city and their love of good food. Don’t hesitate to strike up a conversation with the locals and ask for their recommendations of restaurants and places to see.


The climate in Lyon is temperate, with hot summers and cool winters. Bring layered clothing and don’t forget a hat and sunscreen if you’re visiting in summer. In autumn, during the Rugby World Cup, temperatures can vary, so pack both light and warmer clothes.

Travel restrictions

Depending on your country of origin, you may need a visa to enter France. Be sure to check visa and health requirements before you leave.

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, sanitary measures may be in place, such as the wearing of masks in public spaces. We recommend checking the latest information on official websites before you travel.


By following these tips, you’re sure to have a memorable stay in Lyon during the Rugby World Cup. Enjoy everything the city has to offer, from rugby to local cuisine!
