Enclosed by the Saône and Rhône rivers, this rocky peninsula (presqu'île) is where the heart of Lyon beats. Be it shopping on Saturdays, going out to a traditional bouchon restaurant or theatre in the evenings, or participating in the town's events, everything happens here. It is a place of contrast where the heritage of historical museums rubs shoulders with the bold architecture of the resolutely modern Confluence quarter, a showcase of the town in the 21C.
