Reflections of Lyon
Across the river from Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon) - There is so much cool stuff to say about this city that I wouldn't even know where to start. I spent most of my 2 days there just wandering around the old section, eating way too many pastries, and talking with chefs pâtissiers about the goodies that they were selling. It's only a few hundred miles from Paris but it totally worth the trip on the TGV to get there. Heck, at 200 mph, the TGV ride alone is worth the journey. Just make sure you get a window seat.
