For nature lovers, this park is amazing! Perfect for a romantic walk or a bicycle ride.
Go on a romantic walk in the oldest part of the town, built in the Renaissance style. This is also a great place to have a drink, coffee, or meal outside.
Croix-Rousse is a great area for a romantic walk and lunch. Definitely explore the high street, and visit the local market that is held every morning, the largest market being on Tuesday mornings.
For couples who wish to do a bit of shopping, this high street is perfect! It is right in the center, and if you wish to go for dinner or lunch while you're here, ask a local for directions to Rue Merciere, which is full of typical restaurants and bistros.
The Musee des Beaux-Arts is a large, beautiful museum housed in an old convent. In its halls, you can examine ancient objects and masterpiece paintings and sculptures, spanning a broad time period from ancient Egypt to the modern day.
The Presqu'ile, literally meaning 'almost an island,' is a neighborhood that sits between two rivers. It is a very romantic and unusual place in the city! This area is perfect for going on a walk, and boasts myriad lovely restaurants and cafes — very quiet and peaceful. Here you will find the beautiful Place Bellecour, the Musee des Beaux-Arts, and the Lyon Opera too.
This gorgeous basilica set on a hill is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of the most famous places in the city. After the climb up, you will find beautiful gardens and a sweeping view!
This is an amazing market where you can have lunch or shop for products for a nice dinner — quite pricey, but the food is amazing. It's perfect for couples interested in the local gastronomy!
