The A6, also known as the Autoroute du Soleil, Motorway of the Sun, (along with the A7), is an Autoroute in France, linking Paris to Lyon. The motorway starts at Paris's Porte d'Orléans and Porte d'Italie with two branches, numbered A6a and A6b respectively, that join south of Paris.
The motorway is favoured by holidaymakers as it is the main link to the South of France and the French Riviera and is prone to severe traffic jams around famous bottlenecks, such as the Tunnel de Fourvière near Lyon.
Exits are numbered from north to south.
