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.

  • Visit strolling safely walk... We find what we seek is to say a little of everything: lovely shops, regional specialities, butchers to die for, small authentic covered passages, brief architecture to. A small regret: arrived December 25 no or little Christmas so a little grisouille and little festive decorations.

  • Visited in a day if they have the card and a good pair of shoes! Each recoint hides its location and other creative arts. Sublime panoramic views and the perfect combination between modernity, art and history. I love.
