hair stylist

by jdolsen

I will be in Lyon in May with my daughter. I would like to have my hair styled while I am there. Please recommend a stylist or shop that would be fun for an tourist from the US to visit in Lyon. Judy

Re: hair stylist

You should go to "Orlando" at 4 Quai Fulchiron, phone: 04 - 78 37 71 08, a very original, "barbershop" type place where you get a free head massage when they wash your hair. My hairdresser was a young woman and she did my hair perfectly ...

Travel Tips for Lyon

Leaving a pourboire (tipping)

by keeweechic

Leaving a pourboire (tipping) is at your discretion. Service charges are included on all restaurant bills at a cost of between 10 and 15 percent. Extra tips are accepted of course if you have received above good service. s fair to add a little more if the meal and service has been exceptional. Taxi drivers expect tips of about 10 percent of the fare. Hairdressers will expect about 10% also. Porters, doormen and room service can be offered a small gratuity.

Brasserie Georges

by ATLC about Brasserie Georges

Brasserie Georges is a miracle of architecture. Built in the 1800s, it has a 600 square metres ceiling without pillars! Both pictures (interior and facade in 1836) are taken from the website below.

Tip originally written 26 Aug. 2002 Tripes moutarde, onion soup with egg yolk and madeira and 'pot de Lyon' (0.46 litre of wine in characteristic slim tall bottles). The restaurant specialises in local specialities.
Even back in 1992 there was a smoking and non smoking area. One waiter takes care of you food-wise, another waiter assigns himself to your wine wishes.

Roller-blading

by barryg23

Every Friday night, Lyon is taken over by roller-bladers. All traffic is diverted as hundreds of young people make their way around the city. I think this craze started in Paris and (by summer 2000) had just started spreading to the other towns and cities. I'm not sure if it still continues or if the police have stopped it. It all seems like good fun, though it did get tiresome waiting ten minutes to cross the street.

I'd love to introduce something similar to Oxford, maybe around the main quad in ChristChurch, but I'm still having difficulty learning to roller-blade; it's harder than it looks!

Lyon, city of light

by tweetycaro

The city's appaerance changes dramaticly at nightfall, thanks to the fine illuminations. Every evening more than 150 sites, monuments and bridges are illuminated to create a unique spectacle.

Every December 8th, the people of Lyon place little candle lamps in their windows, in homage of the Virgin Mary. These illuminations are part of a long-lived tradition in the city and the festival created around the event attracts thousands of visitors every year.

Lyon

"Overview"

This is just one small view from the hill of Fourviere. But it gives you an idea of the size of the City, (1Million inhabitants, with the suburb though, still competing with Marseille ;o) )

The big outstanding building is the tower of Credit Lyonnais. There is a huge shopping center just underneath with cinemas, a must see and a must shopping spree if you do not have that much to spend !!

"Sunset on the Rhone"

What I particularly like is the river with the canalboats (on the left)-

"Bridge over the Saone river"

The best way to see the city is by foot, if you're not afraid of walking...

Stroll down from the Fourviere hill, the St Jean district and go over the Saone river through the bridge. It will take you to the peninsula formed by the 2 rivers (the Rhone on the east and the Saone on the west). And of course if you like architecture ... there are picturesque buildings all around, the Bellecour square (the largest of Europe).
