The Presqu'ile is the heart of the city with it's restaurants, shops, bars and architecture. Really busy in the weekend, mainly Saturday so to avoid the crowd just find the small streets and their charm.

The Presqu'ile is an area full of luxury brand name shops and many restaurants which are full of people during the evening. It is a great location where to enjoy a night out.

The central part of the city, called a "peninsula" and made by the confluence of the Saone and the Rhone rivers, is an ideal place to stay in Lyon - the life is boiling everywhere.

This is a good place to wander, window shop and people watch. You can shop too, but many of the shops are expensive and upmarket. There are ample places to eat and to watch the world go by.

This "arrondissement" packs a lot of things to do and visit and it is so nice to be surrounded by 2 rivers.

We stayed in this area. Great local for "bouchons" restaurants, access to museums, shopping and the Old town.
