Author 'Boucher Marc dit de Meilh' (Id 203388 ) : A panoramic view of Lyon from the Fourvière hill. I'm at about 287 meters above the vieux Lyon (on the photo below in the foreground.) The river is the Saone river, which 'encircles' somehow the Old Lyon medieval. Beyond the Saone lies the ' Peninsula of Lyon with the Rhone river (between the river Saône and Rhone is said to be the Peninsula.) And then again, later, with the great Tower, the district of Part-Dieu, Brotteaux, Guillotière, Gerland and Monplaisir, etc Still further, in the blue of the horizon, the suburbs of lyon, the plateau of the Dauphiné to the Bugey ; and finally to the Chartreuse and the Alps.
