Lyon, France, View on the skyline from Montée du Chemin Neuf
Near L’Auberge de Jeunesse du Vieux Lyon (Youth Hostel of Vieux Lyon), you can find a tiny park/square where you will find one of the most beautiful views on Lyon.
From this place, you can admire the roofs of the old Renaissance buildings of Lyon, with the modern skyline in the background, and also the Mont Blanc in the far distance, if the weather is clement. You can also enjoy the unique view from above on Saint-Georges church and its famous passerelle.
I find it a perfect place to enjoy long summer sunsets, and early sunrises, with a camera of course, or with your loved one (or with both, provided your significant other is tolerant enough).
