Sunny day. Walking. Dinning and Shopping.

Surrounded by History the place is really a good place to visit. Walk, have lunch, shop local and non-local but all nice things in the small shops.

Each Sunday in massive Place Bellecour, there is a modest stamp collecting market get-together featuring a group of men and women who are interested in all things philatelic. There are some genuine rarities here and not all are from France. The hours seem to be morning only roughly the same as the nearby Farmers market on quai St. Antoine. A... More

A huge square with a magnificent view on the Fourviere hill is encircled with cafes, restaurants, and boutiques, including the famous Institut Paul Bocuse. The pavilion shelters the City Tourist Office.

You can walk around. It is a great place. There are shops around. It is a big place and you can continue walking to explore the city.

Nothing special about this square, except the view to the Fourviere hill. Good to sit and look at the masses of people passing by: I think the square itself is not much of a sight.

This is the place you need to have seen when visiting Lyon. Generally it is just one big open space and nothing special, but for the inhabitants it is the main meeting place in town and their real city center. The place is surrounded by nice buildings, you are close to nice shops and restaurants and you have a lovely... More

Half of the square was closed as it was the Lyon marathon. The fountain was also closed off!! I guess had all that been missing it would be a fantastic place with a great view of the buildings.

This is central to everywhere and a good place to arrange to meet up with anyone. The tourist office is available here in the square and there are some lovely places to eat, in the restaurants around the square area. We sat in the beautiful weather and just ate and drank beers or coffees and watched the world go by.... More
