There are several options for taking a tourist trip around Lyon. The first is on foot, which is great on a nice day: in addition, visiting Lyon on foot is the only way to see the narrow streets of Old Lyon, which is the most attractive and interesting part of the city A little way north of the center is one of the largest urban parks in the country, with a zoo and France’s foremost botanical garden within its boundaries.
Lyon is a dual-river city, and both riverbanks are a must-see. There are a bunch of boats that are converted to restaurants and cafes along the Rhone, so you can grab a seat on one of the boats or along the pier and enjoy an afternoon treat or coffee The other river in Lyon, the Saone brings the culture and classiness to the city. Along this river are a variety of fancy cafes and restaurants. Be prepared to spend a little more for a meal on this side of town, but a walk along the river is free and breathtaking.
