Poitiers or Lyon?

Contest 2019 Winner!
Our plan is to arrive at DeGaulle Airport [9/13] and take the TGV from there south = either to Lyon or to Poitiers. From there we will rent a car and drive to wherever our lodging ends up being in Dordogne and stay there a week+ before returning to Paris & later, to home. I'm trying to decide between TGV to Poitiers and staying there 1-2 nights or Lyon and doing likewise. Suggestions and ideas? Do we need to get our rental car right upon arrival in the city or can we move around and see some things in the city and then get the car?? Thank you.

I have been to Lyon a few times, most recently in May of 2019 for 3 nights. The city’s sites are easily reached by walking or by using public transportation. We purchased the Lyon City Card which provided free access to some of the museums and free use of public transportation. I have not visited Poitiers so cannot make a comparison of the two places.
