    This coffee shop is in the corner of rue Chevreul and rue de Marseille, two steps from the university (by the campus on the quays), so you can't miss it: indeed, as indicated by its name, it stands out from the greyness of the surrounding buildings as it's pink, a well...

  • The Basilica of Fourvière

    I love the description because I had the fortune to visit this place and after only a few minutes I left. What I remember the most was the wind that literally moved me, it scared me. Thanks to the article I understood many details and aspects of the story that otherwise...

  • Vieux Lyon

    Ever since I have got the opportunity to travel, I have never stopped. It all began in 2016, where I started my first backpacking travel adventures in South East Asia until South America. Visiting mostly secluded areas were the best part of my discoveries. Never in my...

  • The Croix-Rousse Market

    Market's are something very characteristic of France. They are different from those in Mexico because they are only available on certain days and at certain times. Let's say they're more like our "tianguis" (street markets). source Being a big city, Lyon has several...

  • Le Bloc

    If you're looking for a nice nightclub to go with your friends, I suggest "Le Bloc". Located a few steps from Part-Dieu (metro B - various buses and trams), it's a nightclub that I found to be very cool. Typical sofas to sit, stands, bars... The usual. But the music is...

    One of the (numerous! ) advantages of being a student in France is that they have something they refer to as University Restaurants or RUs. Basically, they are restaurants subsidised by the government in order to offer complete menus at an affordable price. For example...
