This well-kept garden is about 20 minutes from the old center of Lyon, on the other side of the river Rhone. Take a Bici in town, which only costs one euro per week, and take your bike in the garden! The entrance to the park entrance and the Tete d'Or, is free. Various garden greenhouses represent different ecosystems of the planet, through the tropics, deserts, and alpine plants. Lyon Botanical Garden was created at the beginning in 1796, on a hill in the city called Croix Rousse. But when he opened the big park Tete d'Or, he moved botanical garden plants in 1857, there. Now, is the largest municipal botanical garden in France.
