La Tour Rose and the Experience of a Dream
La Tour Rose, translated into the pink tower, is nestled in the heart of Old Town Lyon and serves as landmark of sorts for a beautiful landscape that is reminiscent of Italy. This part of the city really looks in many ways like a dream in the sense that it is adorned by terraces, gardens, galleries, waterfalls and so much more. So if you would like a souvenir of this charming place, you can't go wrong with this colorful souvenir from France. Hopefully, when you look at it back home you'll pause to remember the history and culture that makes Lyon a prime tourist destination.
La Tour Rose, which is a hotel, is also a great reminder of a trip to Old Town as it is very centrally located and affords its guests very convenient access to numerous attractions and points of interests, including some world renown museums. So, in a sense, this tower is very much a centerpiece of what old Lyon has to offer, and if you're a history buff who has visited this magnificent city in the past, you know exactly what that is.
La Tour Rose and the Historical Experience
La Tour Rose is emblematic of the old French rural culture that defines the Vieux Lyon. Among exquisite gardens and pools, churches and historical buildings reveal the flavor of old times. The avid traveler will admire the monumental examples of Gothic architecture which include the Cathedral of St Jean in the Saint Jean Quarter, Old Town's central plaza. What the art buff will appreciate is the different architectural styles comprised in a small surface, as upon walking, he'll recognize Romanesque and Renaissance influences in buildings and neighborhoods.
Vieux Lyon also houses some interesting museums. For example, the film lover will be delighted to visit the Museum of Miniatures and Film Sets, while if you are fashion fan, you'll marvel at the silk making workshops and stores located in Saint George neighborhood: their work is not only unique but performed following Eighteenth century patterns of production.
