Lyon, a day trip from Paris. Lifestyle, food, family, and the art of Joie de Vivre.

Paris-Lyon as a same day side trip is a great idea! Lyon is the capital of the Rhone-Alpes region and the third largest city in France. Lyon is a diverse place which offers a lot: great food, historical heritage, modern architecture and exceptional events. After crossing the pedestrian bridge from Quai Saint-Antoine to the Palais de Justice you will see this amazing statue. Somewhat ordinary, at first glance...a man standing carries another, inanimate in his arms. Closer inspection reveals that both individuals are identical! There is an opportunity for much introspection 0:33...Whether by funicular 3:47 or by tram, on foot or in a car, a visit up to La Notre-Dame de Fourvière, Our Lady of Fourvière, is an absolute must when visiting the wonderful city of Lyon, 3:47. The famous church was designed by Pierre Bossan in the mid-late 1800s, in a Romanesque and Byzantine architectural style which was quite unique for the time. Well worth seeing. There is also a amazing view of the city from the church, 4:57. Now, a little bit about Lyon lifestyle...what I love most about Lyon is the original and authentic French feel and the food. Lyon is known as the gastronomic capital of France. You can't visit Lyon without popping by an authentic "bouchon lyonnais". Bouchons 2:34 are traditional eateries in a family atmosphere, often run by a family. This is the absolute must-do. Bouchons as located in the old part of the town, in Vieux Lyon on the bank of the La Saone River. A great place to wander, soak up the atmosphere and relax. A little history about the bouchons...Lyon first made its mark on the French culinary scene in the 19th century, when the city was the center of the booming silk industry. Hungry silk workers clustered in tiny bistros, called “bouchons” to consume the robust, cheap meal, but good meal necessary to carry them through their 18 hour work days. Then, bouchons were bare-bones, family-run establishments, lacking in style and décor but infused with a welcoming, home-style atmosphere. Lyon is known for its dishes of sausage 1:31. My personal favorite is the “gratin dauphinois”, 1:21 sliced potatoes cooked in the oven with cream and grated cheese. Enjoy! À Suivre
