I will be visiting Lyon in August. What's a nice boutique hotel? Also, what are some good bistros?
Hey Frank! I grew up in Lyon and love this city so much! The best way to "live" the city woud be to find an apartment on Airbnb, especially in few "typique" areas such as La Croix Rousse or Vieux Lyon which are really lovely at night and during the day. Don't know if you speak French but Café Théatre (live shows) at Espace Gerson or Le nOmbril du mOnde are really something cool to do. As for good food, bistros are pretty much the same everywhere on the Presqu'île Lyon but a very delicate cuisine is definitely Cuisine et Dependances. Don't forget to walk to Esplanade de Fourvière, the view from there is amazing! Have fun :)
