Lyon

The newer part of the city is designed around its open squares and fountains, with stately buildings and ulta modern shopping complexes. The old city sitting between the Saone River and and the steep hillside that leads you up to Notre dame de Fourviere has the picturesque and narrow streets you would expect.

The traditional bouchon restaurants serve interesting plates - good, honest working man's fare; in some, it's taken to the high level of cuisine that is one of Lyon's drawing cards.

Salad and pigs ears
