2/11.- View from Saone River

Two big rivers converge in Lyon. The smaller one is the Saone River -- the one in the photo. The bigger one is the Rohne. To the west of the Saone river -- on the left -- sits 'Vieux Lyon' (Old Lyon) and the Fourviere Hill. Between the two rivers -- on the right -- is the 'centre ville', with the old Terraux neighborhood, Place Bellecour and the Perrache train station. To the east of the Rohne sits Part Dieu District and most of the city's neighborhoods.

From this side of the river there is a great view of the Basilique Notre-Dame de Fourviere => next
