噼里啪啦
"[Fun] We only linger in the world for a short time, and everything should be based on happiness. You are comfortable. You have no expectation of life, and life has no way to take you. [Cost-effective] Consumption is reasonable."

Reasons to Recommend: The Lyon Old Town is located on the right shore of Saone River, at the foothill of the Fourviere. There are still many old buildings from the 15th to 17th centuries. Many medieval, Renaissance and classical houses are connected to each other. The streets are paved with pebbles. Streetside boutiques, craft shops, restaurants, and cafes are avaliable. While you are shopping, don't forget to look up at the street buildings。 The houses are very beautiful, and you can see stone decorations carved in the windows. They all give a different charm to the old city of Lyon.

"We took the cable car up the hill and got off the cable car and found ourselves standing in front of the church. After visiting the church, we found a little garden like place overlooking the city below with coffee."

Reasons to Recommend: Fourviere is a symbol of Lyon, the cradle of Lyon and the birthplace of Lyon Christianity. The top of the mountain is the height of Lyon, overlooking the city of Lyon, and is a great place to enjoy the night view. On the hill there is Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière, a Catholic Church built in the 19th century and in Baroque style. On the south side there is the Romanesque Arena and the Roman Gaul Museum.

"Lyon’s City Hall is on the Fertile Place. There are not many tourists but many locals. Lyon is also the gastronomic capital of France. There are a lot of food choices near the square. It is also good to have a meal nearby at noon."

Reasons to Recommend: Place des Terreaux is a square in the heart of Lyon, France. The area where this square is located is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. There is the famous Butler Fountain in the square. The fountain is named after its designer, the French sculptor Redrick Augustus Butlerdi. His most famous work is the Statue of Liberty.

Square

"The main body of the Bellecour Square is a large piece of red land. As the largest square in Europe, it is a bit empty at first glance. There is no lawn or green trees. Only a statue of Louis XIV stands at one corner of the square."

Reasons to Recommend: The largest pedestrian square in all of Europe, the vast Place Bellecour is often the site of rallies, demonstrations, concerts, and in the winter, an ice skating rink and a gargantuan Ferris wheel. Once upon a time, the site was an alluvial island, and the Roman military set up camp and market there. The swampy area slowly became a pasture, and in 1604, Henry IV forced Lyon's city council to acquire it for a public square – a court trial ensued, and the square didn't take shape until 1708, when Louis the XIV took ownership of it. He named it Place Louis-le-Grand and a bronze statue of him was placed in the middle. Half a century later, the French Revolution destroyed the royal statue and replaced it with an altar dedicated to liberty, as well as a guillotine. It was renamed Place Bonaparte, and later Place Napoleon. In 1825, however, a new statue of Louis XIV was reinstated in the plaza, which still remains.

野枫印象
"Saint-Jean's Chief Cathedral is located on the Saône River in Lyon, France. It was built in 1170. The building combines medieval and Gothic styles. Because the Archbishop of Lyon enjoys the status of the chief archbishop, this church was named the chief cathedral. Here once witnessed the grand wedding of Henry IV and Queen Marie de' Medici."

Reasons to Recommend: Cathédrale Saint-Jean Baptiste is located on the banks of the Saône River. It was built in 1180 and lasted for three centuries. The church is very old and has a high status. It has a history of nearly a thousand years and is both Romance and Gothic. It is said that the Archbishop of Lyon enjoys the status of chief archbishop, so his cathedral is named after the chief cathedral. The ceremony of the coronation of Pope John XXII was held here. In 1600, Henry IV and Queen Maria hosted a grand wedding ceremony here.

"Although this theater is incompletely preserved, only about a quarter of the previous area remains, and it can still be used normally. We also saw some sound and light equipment at the scene. It must be very sensible to be able to enjoy a performance here."

Reasons to Recommend: As early as 43 BC, the ancient Romans built a luxurious theater in Lyon. In the second century AD, tens of thousands of seats were added to the theater space, showing the grand scene of the theater performance at that time. Later, archaeologists in Lyon studied several times and reconstructed the stage structure that could enhance the acoustic effect. The Ancient Theatre of Fourvière is a large and a small two-and-a-half amphitheatre. It is still well preserved. It is not only an unearthed cultural relic for tourists, but also performs performances such as concerts and operas from time to time.

"Lyon is considered the gastronomic capital of France, and all kinds of French cuisine can be eaten here. Niujie can be regarded as the food center of the gourmet capital. There are various restaurants on both sides of the narrow street. You can try a few different things to subvert your view of French cuisine."

Reasons to Recommend: Niujie is located two blocks west of the court and has many exquisite old houses on both sides. If you want to admire a uniquely constructed building, you can choose to stroll here. Niujie is a famous food street in Lyon, as the world famous food capital. It is very lively and full of local atmosphere, so come to this must have a taste of the French.
