Day 9 - Lyon
We got there around 3 and as we were deciding if we should visit the top - luckily we checked what was opened on Sunday. Turned out, all the shops were closed on Sundays while museums stayed opened.
So we walked around the vieux Lyon (old city) and stumbled across the famous trabuoles (which we later found out to be …
Day 1 - Thursday. We travelled to Lyon via fast train, and arrived at lunchtime. We were very pleased to find that our hotel is just across the road from the station, and also a very large shopping centre (over 250 shops). Well I was pleased about the shops anyway!

Great location, wight across the road from the central station in Lyon Part Dieu and the large shopping mall of Lyon Part Dieu. Friendly and helpful staff at reception, a restaurant and bar on the premises. The room could have been a bit larger and would have been good to include a bar fridge.
