It's pretty ordinary. Although there are rows of magnificent old buildings on both sides of the street, the pedestrian street feels quite boring, except for some shops and restaurants, and there is no greenery.
This pedestrian street is lined with shops, there are many delicious restaurants and interesting cafes, and there are many street performances. At night, the many ancient buildings on both sides of the street are also very beautiful under the lights.
This huge area is a great place to observe some of the great buildings in Lyon. This place is also good to sit down and rest while chatting with anyone. It's a lovely place!
If shopping & people watching is your thing then this is YOUR place. There's plenty to chose from and even a movie theater with movies in English! Enjoy.
Rue de la Republique is like the Fifth Avenue of NYC, Champs-Elysees of Paris, and Nathan Road of HKG....BUT with way more charm and intimate feel with its classical buildings lining both sides. Stores from luxury brands to everyday ready wear is found here. This is a great day time stroll down this bustling street.
Rue de la Republique是一条特色街区，街道两旁商铺林立，这里每一栋建筑都承载着历史的痕迹。
This is equivalent to Wangfujing in Beijing and Nanjing Road in Shanghai. The only difference is that each building here carries traces of history, which can be said: ancient appearance + modern furnishings. Unlike the commercial streets of Chinese metropolises, they are new from the inside out.
