Personal opinions needed

by jiminy8323 Online Now Dec 5, 2007 at 1:57 AM

Hi everyone,
I'm planning a trip to Lyon and was just wondering if anyone could give me their personal opinions about the following tourist attractions:

·Parc de la Tete d'Or
·River Saone Cruises
·Fourviere Basilica
·Musees des tissus
·Saint Jean Cathedral

I've done some research on each of these such as visiting websites etc.
Just wanting some personal opinions of the attractions.

Merci!

P.S. I was also wondering if anyone could tel me about the quality of these two restaurants and the Park & Suite Part Dieu hotel.
MOMMESSIN RESTAURANT ET VINS
LE CANUT ET LES GONES
They look nice on the site but again i'd like some first-hand experiences.

Thanks again.

    I liked Musee des tissus. It's a long time ago but I remember admiring the very old embroidered clothes on display (old being centuries old).

    On VT there are a few reviews on the Meridien Part Dieu hotel:
    Radisson Blu Hotel

    Email the people that were there and ask them!

    Also search for good restaurants at www.viamichelin.com. Put in Lyon at the top and click the Michelin Restaurant option.

    We enjoyed the Parc Tete d'Or. My daughters could have spent hours just with the deer. The plant displays are excellent. We also thought the Musee de Resistance was very good. As for food, Lyon is number 1 in my book for food. We thought La Splendide was so good that we went back a second night. You may try chowhound.com for restaurant reviews on the two specific. One never knows..

    I enjoyed 2 restaurants while I was there. I see that the reviews on Brasserie Georges are still glowing. Just don't drink too much 'pot' Beaujolais! (that's 0,46 litre in a tall thin bottle, typical of Lyon).
