|Subject: advice on Lyon and Marseille|
Hi Mark, If you prefer small cities, you will love Lyon,
probably more than Marseille. At least we did and we also prefer
There is a quality about Lyon than makes it unique and makes you love it.
It might be big, but the feeling you get is that of a provincial town with
very polite and charming people.
Like the hairdresser I went to, ( she of course was the patronne) she went
out of her way to call the restaurant she preferred and make a reservation
I felt a lot of warmth from most people we dealt with.
And of course you have the Old Ville, and the wonderful restaurants, and the
Grand Siecle buildings. It is a lovely town.
The bon week end a Lyon is a program organized by the Marie de Lyon that
gives you a free day if you stay during the week end. All kind of hotels
participate. We chose the Royal a very nice four stars, splurged with a de
luxe room and it was VERY NICE. I believe we arrived on a Thursday left on
Sunday afternoon and paid only two nights.
Have a great trip.
