Lyon, France - Where to visit?

Part two of my Lyon trip! Basically this will be dedicated to places to go and to check on your trip which include church, museums and other touristic sites! I will only be talking about my recommended ones!

1. Basilique Notre Dame de Fouvière - 8 Place de Fourvière, 69005 Lyon
You might think "What's makes this church any different with the other thousands of churches in France?". Answer : style and location.

A huge country of with 643,803 km2, that offers so much more that the eiffel tower // from the most sunny beachy cities in the South to the chilly, snowy mountains to ski. So yeah, I have decided that I will dedicate my energy, money and time to move my lazy ass away from Paris and go into wild adventure (okay 'wild' is a little too much)
Last Fall, I spent sometime in Bourgogne aka Burgundy to visit Dijon and Beaune, then Alsace for my Winter break on which I visited Colmar and Strasbourg and got mesmerized by the beauty of fairytale-looking cities and I must say, they have the 'fleek-est' Christma…
