Exploring The Streets Of Lyon

April 5, 2016

Gosh its beautiful here. And just what I needed after the hideous break up with my ex.

Lyon is rich in atmosphere, people and the city moves at a good pace. Not too fast, not sluggishly slow

I walked alot in Lyon, I mean ALOT. It is one of the more cleaner French cities. Calm, relaxed atmosphere with a cool sophisticated hipster vibe. I recommend visiting Parc de la Tete d’Or, Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, Vieux Lyon and Fourviere Hill.

Vieux Lyon was my favourite part of the visit

Vieux Lyon is the old town of Lyon. I was lucky enough to be visiting during the summer time so I lined up a perfect adventure of a hot summers day. As it is the cities oldest district you will find yourself walking through many ally ways and side roads. Sometimes there are too many little streets to walk into you’ll be spoilt for choice. While walking alone I started to make up my own stories with my surrounding as the setting. It is that enchanting.

Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere should defiantly be on your list. I took a weird route to get there and discovered an old open theatre courtyard. I climbed to the top of the hill and simply chilled out. Ate my packed lunch then walked on to the Fourviere. Most people take a tram or the shuttle bus. Fourviere itself offers a magnificent view of Lyon. It is packed with tourists but you can find your own little spot which is what I did.

Lyon ratings:

People: 6/10, the people are nice but reserved. I wasn’t interacting much though
