Le Puy is a very hilly city! As usual, we had a bit of trouble finding our Inn in the historic old city. We walked from the train/bus station to the center of town and then started uphill. Once to the pedestrian-only section, there were steps rather than roads. We found a very cool plaza with lots of sidewalk cafes, and soon afterwards found the Inn. Having settled in and caught our breath. we ventured back out to relax and grab a bite at one of those sidewalk cafes. Not being at all adjusted to the time, we weren't ready for a real dinner and had cheese and charcuterie instead. Good choice. It doesn't get dark until after 10:00, but that did not keep us awake after two days of travel.
On our second day in Le Puy, we visited many of the sites.
