La Vie à Lyon

Living, learning and loving in Lyon !

Curiosities, Treasures and other Marvels of Lyon

I got a great book for Christmas, called Curiosités, Trésors et autre Merveilles de Lyon. As the title suggests, it’s full of the particularities  that make Lyon Lyon – the pink praline and green cushions, the painted walls, the personalities, the church on the hill, the Festival of Lights, the traboules, Guignol, the history of the silkworkers and, of course, the food.

My latest guide book !

My latest guide book !

It’s given me lots of ideas – new places to explore, landmarks to find and food to try. All good fodder for La Vie à Lyon, so stay tuned !

Except for Guignol, sorry. He’s one of the creepiest puppets I’ve ever seen; you’ll have to find out about him yourself !

Bisous !
