Saint-Nizier-d'Azergues
The Essential
Overlooking the Azergues valley, this small town is pleasantly situated. First take the D9, then the D385 towards Lamure, admiring on the way the 4,500m/14,764ft-long "railway loop" built in 1900. Look out for two works of civil engineering near St Nizier railway station: a tunnel and a viaduct.
