Lyon is in lockdown since the 17th March, for at least 15 days due to Covid-19 virus. What is closed? What is still continuing?
Journalist and travel writer Katy hadn’t planned on coming to Lyon. She’d not really heard much about the city - apart from being a stop on the Eurostar. After leaving the UK for the mountains of Chamonix in 2012 and a stint in Geneva as news editor at a radio station there ( World Radio Switzerland) she found herself in Lyon after a friend suggested getting in touch with Euronews for work. And over a year later, she’s still here, more often than the mountains in fact - and cannot recommend the city more to people, like herself, who previously hadn’t heard much about it. The food, the wine, the much better opportunities for improving her French - and the easy access to all the outdoor activities she loves makes it a winner…. and the city is just so beautiful too. So what better way to spread the word, than join the This is Lyon team!
