More than 10 Top Things to do in Lyon with kids.

Visiting Lyon in an interesting for Kids (and Parents) Way.

I wanted to write about top 10 things to do in Lyon with kids but I couldn’t stop. There are so many cool and fun places for kids to have good time and enjoy that I struggled to choose only 10 and that’s why I extended the list just a little. Yet I came to a reasonable compromise…not too many suggestions but hopefully enough to get you started. I also hope you feel invited to share your ideas and suggestions for the fun things to do and see in Lyon with kids. I would love to see your comments. Thank you in advance.

I am a Polish girl who felt in love with Lyon from the first sight! Jadorelyon is my way of exploring France, the French way of life, their cuisine, sharing the experience from visiting beautiful places in France. Jadorelyon is my new way of adding some Polish influence into French lives and watching on how they like it...
