As Florence is to Rome, Lyon is to Paris — a slightly smaller, yet charming version of its larger counterpart. The vibrant city sits at the intersection of the Rhône and Saône rivers, and is a common stop on the Viking River Cruises tour through the South of France.
Yacht-lined harbors, quaint cobbled streets and rich cuisine; the South of France certainly has a lot to offer for a traveler. It's unparalleled beauty had my jaw dropped at every town and my camera endlessly clicking. It was a photographers dream destination.
