First time to Lyon and loved it. Easy to get to Vieux Lyon from main bus/train station by public transportation. Great pedestrian streets, interesting shops, museums, boulangeries, restaurants. Just a treat all the way around.

The is a lovely city centre strolling area although there are many cobbled streets. View the alleyways and closes which residents are happy to open for viewing by visitors. Visit the cathedral and museums and enjoy the many cafes and restaurants.
