Great area to visit and walk through old streets and passages. Great food at all family restaurants or bouchons.

Lyon is the capital of Gauls. A ramble through the streets of the old city (Vieux Lyon) is a delight in itself. The buildings tell so many stories. Don't hesitate to wander around, without any goal.

This area is the old heart of Lyon. Cosy streets, little local shops, old restaurants that serve mostly the local dishes. It feels like a walk in a fun parc, but Vieux Lyon is real. In the evening the area becomes even more mystic. Vieux...More

The old town and shopping area are cute. We were told that all the shops and restaurants are closed on both Sunday and Monday. But there were actually plenty of places open on the Sunday we were there. It is very hilly so be prepared...More
