Lyon in 48h: Bouchon, Guignol, girlfriends and good humour

Simone, blogueuse parisienne

Always fond of attractive places and the simple things in life, the Parisian blogger Simone has come for a weekend in Lyon with the girls. She tells us about her 48-hour flying visit to the city and shares some of her favourites.

If, like me, you’re not very familiar with Lyon, here's a lightning tour you can complete in 48 hours or less:

Start your day at the  St-Antoine market  to stock up on fruit, delicious cold meat products, fromage frais and local or international specialities. After a good brunch, enjoy a walk through the centre of Lyon, taking in, place Bellecour , place des Terreaux , the  Opéra , etc. Take a leisurely stroll through the streets and partake in a spot of  shopping . You certainly won't be disappointed girls, because Lyon’s city centre is packed with pretty little boutiques. Whether your bank manager will be as happy is another matter!

Cross the river Rhône to the  landscaped riverbanks  and have a drink on one of the barges, such as  the Sirius  for example, with its relaxed arty “hangar” atmosphere.

In the evening, go for one of the old favourites:  a Lyonnais "bouchon " (traditional eatery)! There are two things you need to know: book in advance because the best ones are often full if you leave it till the same day and above all go there with an empty stomach because it'll be more than full when you come out! We ate at the Bouchon des Berges, a pleasant little venue, and ordered the “starter + main course + dessert” menu at €24. It was impossible to finish it though as the dishes were so hearty! The quality was outstanding and the atmosphere very warm and friendly. Here, you eat well and you feel good.

The next day, get your trainers on and climb the small hill to visit the  Fourvière Basilica , which - just between us - is absolutely brilliant!  the Fourvière Basilica  was built at the same time as the Sacré-Coeur and Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde. According to popular tradition, it was built as a result of a promise made in 1870 by the people of Lyon to their Archbishop that they would build a basilica on this hill dedicated to the Virgin Mary if the city was spared by the Prussians. The architecture is truly remarkable and the colours harmonious and bright. Once at the top, take the time to admire the amazing view across the city. Afterwards, take advantage of the walk back down to enjoy a stroll in   the narrow streets  around the basilica, where the charming cafes, shops and bakeries are even open on Sundays.
