Another impressive building - really enjoyed walking around Lyon - it far exceeded expectation. A self-guided walking tour is really easy to put together and visit multiple attractions. A great day.

This seems to be one of the centers of the city where architecture, parks, shopping, restaurants and people meet. Almost an island, it seems to be one of the hearts of the action. This is a good place to stay....
