Lyon City Guide

Do it like a local

I like to think of my website as a place where I can share things with people, and as people often ask me tips for visiting Lyon, I thought my website would be a good place to share some of my favourite places : places where you can eat and drink, places to go out, museums and interesting sights...

Enjoy your time in Lyon :-)
