Welcome to Notes on Lyon
This English-language site explores Lyon, with an occasional glimpse at other areas of France, and a special emphasis on personal experiences.
Greater Lyon is known as France’s 2nd city, yet it is surprisingly tourist-free in most neighborhoods. Known as an industrial center and food capital, it is a beautiful, UNESCO World Heritage site, home to 100,000 students, and over 1.7 million people.
