The Presqu'ile, Lyon

4.5
#2 of 11 in Neighborhoods in Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes
The Presqu'ile epitomizes European luxury shopping. Peruse the boutiques and stop at one of the many cafes that populate “the peninsula”--many are situated in just the right place for people watching. Don’t miss the Rue Mercière, where printers and booksellers gathered in the 15th and 16th centuries to practice their trade. These moneyed avenues weren’t always the home to shopping and coffee sipping. They were once a counterpoint to the church's power in Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon.) Those who didn’t wield power in the Saint Paul quarter, tried their hand here. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to The Presqu'ile and many more Lyon attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Lyon attractions planner.
