My weekend in Lyon

Hi again,

I spent the last weekend in Lyon. I didn’t read anything about this city, I didn’t look for any information or photos before the trip so I didn’t have any expectations, I went with eyes open and I got very good vibrations. It’s a city with many contrasts, different quarters, strong gastronomic culture and lot of history. I didn’t have time to visit all the districts, I stayed in the Vieux Lyon (the city’s oldest district) and I just walked all around this area.

Slide1

The first thing was to find our B&B and a free parking in the old city! Mission impossible!! Luckily we found the last free parking space close to our B&B. We also found the address of our B&B but …….is it correct? I could not find any signs or anything that indicated that was a B&B and the entrance looked a bit scary.

Slide2

We walked in, last floor without elevator (good leg exercise) and Olala!!! It is amazing!! I didn’t expected this!!!

Slide3

Let’s have a quite look around the city and have dinner somewhere, I’m starving!

Slide4

Next day:

Time to explore a bit more the city:

First, we found several open air food markets, this one was in Quai Saint-Antoine.

The whole city smells roses,  this year is the rose festival,  you will find roses in every square and everywhere! Every single bakery in Lyon  was outstanding.

Also I had a bit of time for shopping!

At night we went to La Chimere restaurant that it was recommended by previous guesses of our B&B.
