Loads of shops, cafes and a nice vibe you don't feel like you're on a peninsula just a different part of town but seeing the rivers from the tip of the confluence is amazing.

If you like walking about in cities to discover the spirit and its people, the Presqu'Ile is the place to see (as well as Saint Jean on the other side of the Saone). You will see everything from cathedrals, museums, restaurants, bars, shopping places.

This is the prettiest of Lyon's neighborhoods - especially when the buildings are lit up at night. Places, fountains, wonderful architecture, and cafes abound. Lots of shopping and theaters here as well. This is a real functioing neighborhood filled with locals.

We stayed in a hotel in the centre of Prequ'ile and this was a good move. Perrache station is close by and useful for travelling to other nearby places. There is a very good food market on the East bank of the Saone River.

This part of Lyon is starting to become interesting but there are nearly no cafes or restaurants with character. A big square with some bars but very fast food.
