Smart destination?

For me, a smart destination is a place that proposes an original, innovative tourist experience that’s accessible for all.

Your Smart action?

Greeters are locals who are passionate about their city and volunteer to give up a bit of their time to act as guides for French and foreign tourists. It’s a way for visitors to see the city differently, getting off the beaten track, and experiencing the city’s lifestyle and atmosphere.

Your favorite spot?

The banks of the Saône, on the way out of Vieux Lyon. You can see the city’s colourful Renaissance buildings. I really like the view from this spot.
