Runs down the heart of the shopping district on the Presqu'isle in Lyon. Grands magasins: Printemps, FNAC, etc., as well as boutiques. Shoulder to shoulder pedestrians on a beautiful October Saturday.

If you want a break from the small shops in Vieux Lyon or are looking for some of the bigger names of shops, this is the place to go! Our girls were wowed by Printemps, Hema, Tiger, H & M. and several other brand names!
