    When we went to Europe for the only time in September of 2011, we went to 3 cities in Italy and only Paris in France. Lyon looks like a great place to go for our next Europe trip (some day!).

    Never been to France. 😦 Thanks for sharing your photos. I feel like I’ve seen a small portion of the country and it is beautiful.

    Terrific photos. The Tour de France finished its stage in Lyons this morning. I loved racing through the street with the cameras. I have a weekly meme on Mondays called Dreaming of France. I’d love if you’d join in and we can celebrate France all year long. Here’s Mine

    Your photos are beautiful!! It must have been an amazing trip! I’ve never been outside of the US except one brief trip to Mexico and trips to Canada (only two hours away). I’ll just have to enjoy France through your photos…

    Gorgeous!!! I really would love to vacay to Europe. Did the French treat you any differently for being American or did you just say you were Canadian 😉

    beautiful photos, I can’t wait to go. Nov 2014 can’t get here soon enough, don’t think we’ll have time for Lyon, it’s my best friend’s 50th birthday trip and we’re planning 3 days added on to our 3 weeks in UK.

    I visited France in 2003 and stayed a couple of days in Lyon. Unfortunately half a day was spent trying the correct hospital for my friend whose knee was giving her pain. But it was still a lovely city and a pharmacist opened up his shop to us on a Sunday after seeing us look crestfallen in front of it (my friend needed to fill a painkiller prescription from the hospital). We stayed way up in a hostel reached by funicular and my best memory of Lyon is overlooking the city on a clear night and seeing the Alps in the distance. (We hadn’t realized they were so close.)
