A charming and quiet stroll in the old part of Lyon with its cobblestone-lined little streets. We arrived around 10 am on a Saturday morning and missed all the crowds. Eventually took the staircase up to the church and had nice views. Worth the effort,...More

Going down the Fourviere hill, turn to the left and spend some time wandering in the old town of Lyon. Lots of narrow streets, with hundreds of small stores and bouchons (local restaurants). A nice place to buy your souvenirs.
