Place Bellecour is a large square in the centre of Lyon. At 47,520 m², (264 x 180 m square) without streets or pavements, it is the 3rd biggest square in France. There are often performances and there is a large ferris wheel.
We wandered to Place Bellecour one evening and it seems to be the centre of everything in Lyon and has the large tourist bureau as well. There is street performers everywhere and the kids were enchanted by them. There is a large ferris wheel and although I am scared of heights, i decided to give it a try. I am glad I did as the views were beautiful and the city looks so beautiful light up at night! I felt as though the kids were safe as the ferris wheel is quite modern. Even without going on the Ferris wheel, there are nice views up to the higher parts of the city. A lovely square - the 3rd largest in Europe I believe.
