... did not get to Lyon until 6.30 when it was incredibly dark but it did start snowing. We had a quick freshen up at the restaurant before we made our way into town to get dinner and try some fine French cuisine! We kind of had our own freedom to go wherever we wanted for dinner and we found a nice restaurant with an English menu and were quite happy to settle there. The food was some of the best I have had.
