The Presqu'ile, Lyon

(4.6/5 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.

  • Historic center, Assembly of small villages, everything is there, the quality, the picturesque, tourist traps, and wonderful places. It's too bad that City Hall is more interested in its interests by becoming of this magical place. Avoid for example the quarter Grolée, sold in bulk to interests of Cathar, and since become a desert... Beautiful bookstores, Museum... Attention the peninsula is not the neighborhood in convergences...

  • Lyon did not miss this place as Bell does not get steady Le square. This is near a large pharmacy (pharmacie de grande lyonnaise) which can be purchased inexpensively France cosmetics. Cosmetics, as well as a variety of medicines, all of them you can buy at an affordable price. This is where the night the atmosphere is also different, even at night. Well where to go, but it probably will be at the afore-mentioned position would place the Nazis often. Comfortable places to shop.
