Lyon City Day Tour; Major Tourist Spots

Central Europe 1st part; 4-days traveling solo in France
October 10 to October 14, 2013


I went to Lyon on a short-visit only due to boredom. From Lyon Part Dieu train station, I stroll around the Lyon City Center by around 6 hours only. Lyon is the third largest city in France, centre of the second largest metropolitan area and the capital of the Rhone-Alpes region.

Founded by the Romans, with many preserved historical areas, Lyon is the archetype of the heritage city, as recognised by UNESCO. Lyon is a vibrant metropolis which makes the most out of its unique architectural, cultural and gastronomic heritage, its dynamic demographics and economy and its strategic location between Northern and Southern Europe. It is more and more open to the world, with an increasing number of students and international events.
