Cool Things To Do in Lyon

Quirky, unusual and just plain fun, there are lots of cool things to do in Lyon. Starting the list, getting lost in Lyon's maze of Renaissance passageways ( Les Traboules de la Croix-Rousse), is a very cool way to discover the nooks and crannies of the Croix-Rousse silk workers' domain. After that, visitors can go for a second round of "trabouling" down the hill at the Traboules Saint-Jean, and finishing up just in time for sunset, you might like to rest your legs on a two hour open-top bus tour of Lyon's night-time illuminations (Lyon City of Lights Tour).

For a completely quirky way to discover the city, visitors can take a guided tour around Lyon in the comfort of a charming Citroen 2CV, and with a little persuasion, your guide and driver might drop you off a L'Ile Barbe, a very cool river-locked island that hosts live outdoor concerts during the summer months. And for a visit that may not shout out coolness - but it is a very cool place to go - visit the lesser know Église Saint-Bruno-des-Chartreux. Tucked away on Croix-Rousse hill, this large church may not look like anything special from the outside, but when you step inside, expect to be awe struck in a very cool way! Also, for a literally cool way to while away the hours on a sunny afternoon in Lyon, head to Lyon's riverside outdoor swimming pool, Piscine du Rhône at Quai Claude Bernard.
