Surprising Lyon

Notre Dame de Fourviére

We had such a great time in Lyon, finding so much more to see than expected.  From ancient to modern, Lyon is a city that surprises.  Everywhere we went from the narrow cobbled streets of Rue de St Jean to the astonishing Basilica of Notre Dame de Fourvière, from the modern bright buildings of the Confluence to the wide open spaces of Bellecour and Place Des Terreaux we found something unexpected.  Lyon also lived up to its reputation as one of the culinary centres of Europe.
