Lyon travel tips

1) In Lyon, the time between 12:00 and 14:00 is for lunch — not for shopping

French shops are likely to be closed during those hours. The restaurants may take a pause afterwards until the evening. Not all shops and restaurants follow that schedule. However, by choosing the wrong time, you may find your shopping and lunching options limited. To avoid that, adjust your plans to the ebbs and flows of local life.

2) Finding tasty latte or cappuccino in Lyon may be a challenge

The French usually drink coffee black and hot. Sometimes milk and sugar can be added. However, such varieties as latte, cappuccino or iced coffee are not very common. The same is true for tea: you may choose from many herbs, but iced tea isn’t popular. Milk or sugar are seldom added. If you are determined to have your drink the way, you like it, get ready to experiment with several baristas.

3) Have a picnic at the rooftop terrace of the Halles Parking Lot in Lyon

The recently restored parking lot next to the Halles Paul Bocuse got a rooftop terrace and garden on its top. You can buy some lunch at the Halles below and take it here to enjoy both the food and the view. Or just come up here to read and relax in the sun, if the weather is nice.
