The Presqu'ile, Lyon

(4.5/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
The Presqu'ile epitomizes European luxury shopping. Peruse the boutiques and stop at one of the many cafes that populate “the peninsula”--many are situated in just the right place for people watching. Don’t miss the Rue Mercière, where printers and booksellers gathered in the 15th and 16th centuries to practice their trade. These moneyed avenues weren’t always the home to shopping and coffee sipping. They were once a counterpoint to the church's power in Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon.) Those who didn’t wield power in the Saint Paul quarter, tried their hand here.

  • You can go to City Hall and down to the place Bellecour through the four parallel streets busy shopping and you see the town centre of Lyon. Do not neglect to other districts.

  • It is very nice to walk walk, beautiful buildings and places such as Bellecour, the Cordeliers, Les Terreaux between the Rhône and the Saône. Many shops and nice signs

  • This is the visit to if we just in Lyon! The name given to all the districts of Lyon between the City Hall and confluence. The opera is breathtaking, the visit of the Town Hall (if you get the chance) is breathtaking and the place rich in animation Bellecourt. It is to do!
