Highlight Lyon, France

The Croix Rousse district

Perched on the hill that shares its name, Lyon’s Quartier de la Croix Rousse is affectionately known as “the village” due to its charming local feel. The district is divided into two areas – the slopes and the plateau – where you can stroll up the hill while exploring the many art galleries, boutiques and trendy cafés on your way to the plateau, where sweeping views overlooking Lyon await. Discover the Passage Thiaffait, a wonderfully restored 19th-century passage which harks back to the quarter’s silk-weaving past, when weavers used the traboules (walkways) to escape the weather while transporting their wares.
