For a two days break, you will start to have a look of the town from the top of « Fourviere Hill ». Then you will spend time strolling in Old Historical Renaissance District, enjoying the french style of life in the "Bistrot Lyonnais".
Thoughout a three days stay , you will wander though areas listed by the U.N.E.S.C.O :
