Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Lyon

The people of Lyon tend to be pretty friendly and keen to tell people about their city, although Hotels.com recommends trying a few words of French to break the ice. This is a great destination for lovers of the outdoors. Rent bikes from the easy to use Velo'V system and see the sights from the best possible angle. Lyon is also a city of food lovers.
