“Smallish region, but interesting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Fun to have a beer or glass of wine, sit outside and "people watch." From here, one can walk up to the Roman amphitheatre ruins.

“Interesting walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Just walking around and looking at people. Easy to get lost and just as easy to find your way out. Several small bars to stop and have a drink before walking on.

“a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

in a two days walk, discover all the courtyards and "les traboules" through several buildings forming a secret continuous covered passageway. Don't miss to eat in one of the typical "bouchon".

“Very cute - locals come here too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

This is a good part of Lyon - Friendly, happening place (we were there on a Saturday night). Just walk around and observe the night life happening, check out the old buildings and relax.

“Charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Even though it has it's share of touristy shops and is a bit small, this is a lovely area with lots of historic charm. We loved grabbing a baguette from one of the boulangeries (Boulangerie du Palais was our favorite) and enjoying lunch in the sqare in front of the Saint John Cathedral. We had some wonderful dinners in this area as well, and enjoyed searching for the historic passageways. Great place for a stroll or sharing a bottle of wine on a summer evening.
