France Diary: Lyon

Lyon from the car

My holidays to the South of France have already started, with the first stop in Lyon, just enough to have an evening walk. We explored a bit the old city centre and took the stairs up to the Basilique de la Fourvière. The stairs and the uphill walk was not much fun for me, but at least we had really nice views of the city. Thankfully, on the way back we took the funiculaire and we were right back in the centre. By walking from there to our hotel, we realised how close the hotel actuall was to the centre, the city hall and the shopping area (and a Starbucks of course). We also tried the Rosette de Lyon, a type of pork sausage which is delicious!
