In the beautiful city that is Lyon, there’s no lack of picturesque settings.

If you want to make a public declaration of love, you could go down on one knee on the busy Place Bellecour or Place des Terreaux on a Saturday night. Or why not use the acoustics of Lyon’s ancient Roman theatres to your advantage?

Or would you prefer the classic approach in a classy restaurant? Pick a place with a view (there are the Michelin-starred restaurants Têtedoie and Les Terrasses de Lyon, or the gastronomic Le Célest), or why not go for the Hermès river boat and restaurant?

Perhaps you’d like a more intimate approach, away from the crowds? Keep reading!

For a secluded, romantic setting, the Croix-Rousse offers breathtaking views over the city (I would recommend Place Bellevue and the Jardin des Chartreux), as does Fourvière, with the Jardin des Curiosités and the Passerelle des Quatre-Vents in the Parc des Hauteurs.

The little-known garden of antique roses tucked away in the Jardins du Rosaire beneath Fourvière Basilica also offers an incredibly romantic atmosphere with a view over the city.

What could be better than a moonlit walk? Stop in front of the fountain on Place des Jacobins, stroll along the banks of the Saône or go to the very tip of Lyon in the garden of the Musée des Confluences, where the Rhône and Saône come together.

For an exceptional moment, offering a unique opportunity to discover of the city, book a guided tour on a cyclopolitan... Or, if you're feeling sporty, take a bike and ride up to the heights of Lyon, with some fantastic views to share! 
You can also hire a license-free boat for a trip on the Saône or go for the celebrity effect with a private boat or yacht.

A moment just for you in the hustle and bustle of the city!
