Lyon was a bit unexpected for us. We had this one night we hadn’t booked accommodation yet because we were still deciding where to go. Our stop after this night was Amboise (in the Loire Valley) so we had to get roughly halfway from La Spezia to Amboise and hopefully still end up somewhere nice.
We were tossing up between Lyon and Geneva, and ended up going with Lyon for time, distance and cost reasons, and I am so glad we did, because we totally fell in love with Lyon!
