I did it! I bought tickets to the semi-finals and finals in the FIFA Women's World Cup in Lyon France in July. The games are on the 2nd, 3rd and 7th. I'm looking for suggestions as to what to do while there. My guess is I should stay there the entire time with day-trips the 4th-6th from Lyon. So, I'm looking for suggestions of day-trips. I saw in previous forums that Avignon is good, as well as Geneva (though not sure I want to switch my funds to Swiss Francs). On the 3 game days, I intend to explore Lyon.
I am also interested in determining whether we should stay near the Stade de Lyon or bite the bullet for transportation there every game day. Seems it would make more sense to stay in the "city" rather than by the stadium.
Thanks in advance!
