Presqu'île



The spit of the land which stretches from the Rhône and the Saône to the foot of the Croix-Rousse hill. This is the commercial centre of Lyon with the Rue de la République and the Rue Victor Hugo which give out onto the Place Bellecour, a meeting place for many people of Lyon. Stylish shops are to be found around the Rue Edouard Herriot, the Rue Comte houses the majority of Lyon's antiques dealers, and the Rue Mercière boasts all styles of restaurants. Visitors should take a stroll down smaller streets in this area, rather than settle on the first appealing window display. Saint Martin d'Ainay, one of the rare Roman churches preserved in Lyon, is situated to the south of Presqu'île, as well as the pleasantly surprising Musée des Tissus, housed in an 18th century townhouse.
