Lyon in spring is all about the serene and verdant landscapes. Explore the expansive Parc de la Tête d’Or, wandering among the beautiful flowers, trees and boating lake. A picnic in the park with a spread of French cheese, wine and strawberries is the perfect way to enjoy a spring afternoon in this beautiful city. Before you leave, make sure you visit the Botanical Gardens, housed within the park, to see a magnificent collection of plants from around the world.
You can also soak up the sights of the city by taking a relaxing stroll or bike ride along the Rhône riverbank. Witness the impressive Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière on the hilltop, the ancient Cathedral of Saint-Jean-Baptiste, and the spires of Saint George Church of Lyon.
