Lyon is a gorgeous city. Not only is it filled with beautiful, period architecture in a scenic riverside setting, it’s also home to plenty of great street art. Since the 1970’s, Lyon has been a center for trompe l’oeil murals, and more than 200 grace the city’s walls. You can even download a map for your iPhone to take a self-guided tour. Graffiti artists share this spirit, bringing art out of the museums, making it free to everyone, and adding color and whimsy to daily life in the city.
