I always thought if Paris was like NYC then Lyon was going to be like the Hamptons. Close to the city, an escape, better weather etc. In fact Lyon is like Chicago, and is the second city of France. It’s massive!
We started at the Basilica in Fourviere, high on the hill in the old town. It’s built and designed in the Byzantine style and compared to the gothic heaviness of Notre Dame, it is light and airy and uplifting.
The locals were out enjoying the weather as much as the visitors!
