medieval areas, too.
When I was in Lyon a couple of years ago, I found that the
district west of the rivers was the nicest part, with narrow,
crooked streets and the oldest buildings. The peninsula between
the rivers is 17th C (or so), and while it's nice, I don't find
its gridiron layout as enticing as the earlier parts.
