Summer is well on the way and there are so many things to look forward to: the beautiful sunshine, the beach, and vacation!!! Yes, it’s that time of the year again and in this article, after Rennes, I want to take you on a 24hr tour of one of France’s biggest cities: Lyon a.k.a the Capital of Lights! Prepare yourself for a day filled with fun, food and culture!
11 a.m Let’s start with brunch
Start your day with delicate homemade pastries from Thé Où and don’t miss their famous teas which are all guaranteed to be delightful!
1:30 p.m Market Time
It wouldn’t be France if you didn’t have markets readily available every day. Marché Saint-Antoine is surrounded by a bed of water which only adds to the excitement of finding hidden gems within the stalls.
4 p.m Relax at the park
There really is no better way to spend a summer day than to visit Parc de la Tête d’Or, the popular city park complete with a small zoo, sports facilities and a lake. Bring some snacks, rent a boat and enjoy a peaceful hour or two on the lake in the heart of Lyon.
7 p.m Dinner at the Bocuse Restaurant
Owned by world famous chef and innovator of the nouvelle cuisine style of cooking, Paul Bocuse fostered this restaurant to reflect his culinary mastery so you can expect to receive a 5-star dining experience!
9 p.m Trompe l’oeil
Walk off your delicious dinner by visiting Lyon’s many murals. Immerse yourself in the optical illusions and try to guess what is painted on and what isn’t!
