Lyon Part Deux.

After burritos, we headed off towards Vieux Lyon, but for reals this time.

We crossed over La Saône...

...and started the long "up" to Old Lyon.

And by long "up" I mean 808 steps (between two different sets of stairs). I think there is some sort of shuttle you can take, but that's not really our style. (That being said, I'm quite sore today from the impromptu stairmaster-esque marathon.)

The long walk was worth it to see this view over Lyon... well as to see the Basilique Notre-Dame de Fourviere and Tour Métallique.

{These Frye boots were meant for walkin...}

After walking up 808 stairs and then down 808 stairs, we were tired, cold and in need of a beverage. Luckily we found an incredible cafe called l'apostrophe, where we sipped on some vin chaud with the mid-afternoon Lyonnaise crowd.

Next, Lyon Part 3...
A la prochaine friends...
