To get to know the city, or bid farewell to it
A romantic stroll along the river?
It's a very cool and different way of experiencing Lyon - whether after you've just arrived and are getting to know the city, or as a way of saying goodbye at journey's end. A narrated cruise on the Rhône or Saône rivers lets you cover many of the most important districts of the city without moving from your chair. The rivers are lined with various companies offering river tours, which usually last about an hour. You can sit on the al fresco top deck or enclosed lower deck. Especially recommendable in late afternoon, as sunset in Lyon is especially lovely from the water.
