    Tourist Office.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You find the tourist information (Office du tourisme du Grand Lyon) in Place Bellecour and it opens 9.00 and close at 18.00. You can also call it.

    My first visit here was really well and just good memories. The woman helped me so much, and was so friendsly, but my second time here at this tourist office I did not get that kind of service you expect from someone working in the travelling busines. She wants not rude, but she did not want to be to my help. It felt when I talked with her, I bothered her. My new experience is that you can get very good and bad service in the same place, it depends mostly on the person you meet. So, be pleasant even if they are an ***.

    Dogs in a bag

    by vichatherly Written Apr 20, 2008

    In some of the small bars we spotted this small dog in a Frenchmans "Man Bag". Maybe he told the wife that he was going to take the dog for a walk and decided to head for the bar instead. The dog didn't seemed too worried about it anyway.

    If you want to travel to Lyon...

    If you want to travel to Lyon or actually anywhere in France, try not to go in August. That is when the French predominantly take their vacations. They close stores and restaurants (like the one I mentioned) during their break.
