Very relaxing and informative. If you want to see a bit of nature, go up to isle barbe. For architecture, go down to the two rivers. Contrary to last time I was there, the guide's English was very good. Very nice personnel.

With our City Pass Card, we had a free cruise on the Lyon City Boat. The guide narrates in French and English. This one hour tour is a great overview of Lyon -- from the history to the modern architecture.
