Lyon Part 2 | Art, Food Markets and Fish

14th September

I’ve divided my Sunday in France into two parts, Lyon Part 2 and Dijon Part 1, because there are just too many pictures and too many things to be said in one post.

Lyon in the morning was even prettier than it had looked the night before. We checked out of the hotel straight away because we had to drive in to Dijon later that day and we wanted to have a look at the market before we left that we’d been told about. On the way to the car park we found ourselves in the middle of an art market along the length of the river, so we took a quick walk through that. There was a total mix of art from little weird wire sculptures to amazing oil paintings of Lyon. Then, we crossed the river to find the other market. It was a proper little french market with fruit and fruit in abundance, meat and cheese, mushrooms, olives and boulangerie’s (bakeries). It was amazing to see  people wandering around with shopping lists and so many little dogs everywhere. It made me want to live somewhere were that could be my weekly shop. I did have a pain au chocolat because I felt like it had to be done, and it makes me feel french to order it.

Picture loaded post as per usual:



The road our hotel was on – literally the Street of Beef.

Lyon, I loved you, and one day I will be back for more.
