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.
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.
We walked in, last floor without elevator (good leg exercise) and Olala!!! It is amazing!! I didn’t expected this!!!
Let’s have a quite look around the city and have dinner somewhere, I’m starving!
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.
And last day! I found the La Fresque de la Bibliothèque de la Cite.
Lyon is one of Europe’s most famous mural cities.
