Lyon

Today, we awake to find our beautiful Viking ship, the Heimdal, has arrived in Lyon, France’s third largest city. These swans are just waiting to be fed…

Lyon is a cyclist’s paradise.

But, fortunately, lol, a bus drives us to the Grand Basilica of Notre-Dame atop Fourvière Hill. Lyon Basilica of Notre Dame

After admiring the interior of the spectacular church, we take in a sweeping view of Lyon.

Of course, we have to enjoy ‘Une brioche aux pralines’ at the café on top of the hill 🙂

Thanks to our guide Claire, back in Old Town, we discover outdoor murals,

unique hidden passageways and an abundance of restaurants, Chez Louise, Chez Grand-mère, La Nef des Fous, Le Tire-Bouchon, La Mouss’Tache, Brasserie Le Nord…

Roger would like to come back to Les Pas Sages…(The misbehaving) ha!

Wandering the Vieux Lyon,  we take a few more pictures of course.LyonLyon basilica from a distance (2)

Very interesting!

 

And now, we head back to the bus. No wonder Roger wants the last seat!
