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.
The A6 motorway used to be prone to severe traffic jams around Fourvière Tunnel near Lyon prior to the opening in 1992 of A46 autoroute and in 2011 of the A432 autoroute which is also called the "Contournement de Lyon".
