Carbon footprint 0/10, Happiness footprint 10/10!

When you arrive in Lyon for the first time, you may hear that Lyon is easily seen on foot… "Ah, these crazy Lyonnais!" you may think. Well, no, they're not. And it's quite true. You can.

Especially when the weather's fine, as there's nothing nicer than strolling through the streets or along the river banks to admire the architecture, or do a spot of shopping. It's even a must if you want to soak up the atmosphere of the city. And if you like walking, well you'll surely love striding through the hilly Croix-Rousse and Fourvière districts, up Rue de la République of course, and all the way around the Parc de la Tête d'Or… And if not, there are other means of transport that are just as eco-friendly that will really help you make the most of your stay.
