Crafts Market

Every Sunday morning local artists, artisans and craftsmen set up their stalls among the pleasant trees and buildings of Quai Romain Rolland and showcase their works. Visitors can find paintings, sculptures, photographs and crafts of all sorts to take home as unique souvenirs.

Shopping

Shopping becomes deceptively relaxed in a pedestrian-friendly city like Lyon. All you have to do is to follow the pedestrian route along the rue de la République and rue Président Edouard Herriot for your credit card to become overheated. But don’t forget that you are at the hub of the gastronomic galaxy. Failing to take a few samples of local specialities home would be a great mistake.
