Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Lyon

Lyon is often referred to as the "gastronomical capital" of France. So, it probably goes without saying that you will want to frequent the area's restaurants and cafes while on your holiday. Baguettes and cheese are not just a French stereotype, by the way. They are a common staple of French cuisine. Just be sure to grab two baguettes - one for later and one to nibble on your walk back to the hotel. When eating out in Lyon, remember that tips or service charges are almost always already added to the bill. Feel free to add a small tip or round the bill up if you were exceptionally happy with your meal and the service. Don't be surprised, as you wander around Lyon, to see locals getting around town on kick scooters. What is typically a child's toy in other countries is a common way of transportation in Lyon. You'll even see businessmen in suits and women in heels kicking it down the sidewalk. Finally, don't plan to visit France in August, as this is when most locals take their holiday, and most shops and restaurants will be closed. Start your Villeurbanne, Lyon hotel search today at Venere
