The Croix Rousse is a popular hipster neighborhood in Lyon. Situated high above the Old City, it also offers splendid views. We took the Metro up to Croix Rousse and wound our way back down on foot to explore some of the traboules (alleyways) that Lyon is famous for. I loved this bit of street art which seemed to characterize the neighborhood.
It's impossible to have a hipster neighborhood in any part of the world without a gourmet chocolate shop.
We indulged in a chocolate covered marshmallow log taking it to go to savor while admiring the nearby views.
Musee des Beaux-Arts de Lyon rounds out this impressive square.
