Residual jet lag had us waking early which just means we had a nice sleep in and still got up relatively early. We had booked ourselves on a walking tour of Vieux Lyon, the “old town”. Unlike Paris, Lyon simply left the old town in tact and built newer towns across the river, which look more like Paris as it is today. However, the old town dates back to the Middle Ages and looks more like Italy or even Spain.
After the walking tour, we headed off and covered a lot of ground, basically checking off all that one must see whilst in Lyon. Those already familiar with Lyon will more likely recognise the locations… The highlights of today would be the climb up to see La Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and the view from the top! Eating Gelato! Hunting for the famous artwork landmarks such as Le Mur Des Canuts throughout Lyon and finishing it off visiting Parc de la Tete.
I think somehow tomorrow will be a more relaxing day!

Lyon is a place we never got to visit. Love the photos. Looking forward to hearing about the rest of yr trip. Enjoy xx
Cannot believe you didn’t get to visit Lyon when you lived just down the road! It’s worth a visit next time you are over this way 😀
Think you’ve seen more in your first day than we saw in two! Love the photos – one even looked like where we stayed (though hard to tell as they were doing maintenance at the time)- thank you, brought back lots of memories.
Looking forward to the regular journey updates & further great photos. Have a ball! Happy walking!
Love Cathy & Michael
Looking good Steve and Jen, especially the Gelato shot!
Hi Jenny and Stephen, so pleased to be on the walking trail ‘with’ you guys again. So shocked to hear of your surf ‘adventure’ from January. Wow, how great that you are up and out seeing the world again and sharing it with us all. Happy travels. Deb ( Linley).
Hi Deb, nice to hear from you and thanks for your kind words. Love Jenny
