Lyon is well known for its food and we started off our time in the city with a tasty meal at Cafe Le Sud, one of Chef Paul Bocuse's restaurants. Cafe Le Sud specializes in cuisine from the south of France. Although slightly pricey, the food was quite good - S had a delicious stew. We were too full to try any desserts, but the ones that we saw come out of the kitchen looked great.
Also at the top of the hill is the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière, a very ornate church.

After dinner, we headed back to the hotel and were surprised by Mr. CP who crashed with us instead of staying overnight at Le Corbusier's La Tourette. We did visit the convent on the following morning though...and I'll have photos of the interesting structure in a future post.
