Lyon is a dynamic city where we are never bored. Renowned for its food and its unusual places, Lyon is one of the most beautiful cities in France. So, I will help you discover the top 5 places to see (and to do) in this beautiful city.
First, Notre Dame de Fourvière. This basilica dominates the city from the top of the hill of Fourvière. It’s THE monument to see if you go to Lyon.Then, the Parc de la Tête d’Or. It’s one of the biggest parks in France and we can also see animals such as giraffes. In brief, it’s the perfect place to relax and to clear your head and all that… for free!
After the park, the bouchons Lyonnais. The bouchons are typical cafés where we can find Lyon culinary specialties.Another place where we can walk is in the neighborhood of Croix Rousse. This neighborhood is built in height. So, I advise to the lazy people out there to get there by subway and the bravest people can climb the many stairs!
And finally the last thing to do: take a walk on the banks of the Saône. It’s the perfect place to have a picnic or even stroll by bike.Lyon is full of places of all kinds and it’s just a top 5! This “little Paris” is full of surprises.
See you soon!
