|Subject: Lyon was TGV|
Hi, I agree with Linda's and Richard's recommendations regarding Lyon.
It is a fascinating French destination , people are extremely nice, wonderful things to visit including great walking tours organized by the Tourist Office, a great offer of one hotel night free when you buy one during week- ends in many many fine hotels ( sponsored by the Tourist Office.) This offer is called Le bon week end a Lyon ( Also available at Dijon).
Regarding the TGV we had a very pleasant experience I called from Miami the number the French Railways has for foreigners - 33 836 353539-, not only I made a pre paid reservation ( using VISA) in the TGV from Lyon to Torino but because it was on a Sunday they told me I was entitled to a substantive discount. We traveled first class and the fare was most reasonable. I agree though with Richard that the second class is very good too.
