Son lives in Lyon and cycling can be a nightmare if your nervous.

Having said that Lyon has a system of pay and unplug bike stations throughout the city.

Put money in machine unplug the bike and then leave it at another bike station elsewhere.

They do not do organised bike tours in the city.

For just two days you would be better off on foot. Funicular to Cathedral, when up there if you can do the millions of steps to the top of the highest steeple.

Guided tour through Traboules (Old Lyon or Croix Rouge)

Between the Saone and Rhone 100's of restaurants. Best in evening, walk through check menus and prices then select the one you want. Some of the hole in the wall ones are top class.

Lunch time cruise on the Saone includes 4 course meal

Somewhere, but it always takes me hours to refind it is a magical minature museum with over 500 exhibits and if your lucky you may find one of the builders making one. Eg 1000 seat restaurant with every table set for a 5 course meal in minature.

Two days for lyon is not enough.

Best of luck, enjoy.

The miniature museum is nice indeed and is very easy to find as it is located in the most touristy street in the city, a few steps from St Jean cathedral.

You can test Lyon Bike Tour provides guided tours of Lyon on electric bikes, allowing you to discover the city's cultural heritage through a series of surprising anecdotes.

Kind Regards
