    Lyon, Old Town

    September 24, 2017 in France ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    This afternoon we took a walking tour of part of the Old Town of Lyon. Lyon is where the 2 rivers, Rhone and Saone meet. It was a walled city, merchant town and the French centre for silk weaving. There are fascinating little hidden passages or 'short cuts' in the buildings to take you from one street to another. The passages are called La Longue Troboule and have a central courtyard where the house/apartment is reached by stairs. Lyon is the 3rd largest city in France and just a great place to visit. This is our last day on the Continent- fly over to the UK tomorrow to head up to Scotland!Read more
