I may well have missed some of this neighborhood's attractions, but apart from Le Gros Cailloux (a large rock placed where there is a great view out over the city and an amusing legend about its existence) and the Maison des Canuts (a small museum...More

It is a vibrant place but also has some calm streets. It has a creative and hipp vibe with little shops, art galleries, restaurants and cafes. All the area has stunning views.

Perched on the hill is Croix-Rousse, the former silk loom/jacquard loom capital of Lyon. The neighborhood is highly walkable and has a very friendly, open vibe. Great restaurants and boulangeries on every block. Don't forget a stop at the cat cafe.
