The last of Lyon

Lyon was a great town to visit and I am so grateful to the couple that let us stay in their appartment right in the heart of the city. The town is interesting and so unique and yet very French at the same time.

Despite the buildings, what I loved most about Lyon was the waterways, the greenery and the many fantastic views over the town. The old town of Lyon seems to be an island of history, floating at the confluence of two rivers, the Rhone and  the Soane.

Lyon surpassed my (admittedly rather hazy) expectations. I’d be back again in a heartbeat if my time, budget and long term goals allowed.
