Oct. 7 -- When you come to Paris, be sure to stop by Musée Grévin and say hi to Tony Parker. He's only the seventh athlete ever to be waxed at the museum. (Photo: Catherine Steenkeste/NBAE/Getty Images)



Oct. 6 -- Well, we finally made it to Paris. It's significantly colder here than it was in Lyon, especially when you visit the Eiffel Tower on a windy day. (Photo: Gregory Shamus/NBAE/Getty Images)



Oct. 5 -- It is with sadness we say goodbye to the wonderful Lyon. France's second-largest city has been a gracious host, but the sun is setting on the Spurs trip, as they play an exhibition against local team Adecco ASVEL. Thanks go out to San Antonio's Brent Barry for capturing the final postcard from Lyon. See you in Paris tomorrow. Au revoir. (Photo: Brent Barry/San Antonio Spurs)


Oct. 4 -- We only have a couple days left in Lyon, so it's time to see one of the city's marvelous religious monuments. To truly grasp the beauty of Basilique Notre Dame, it is best to view it from all angles.

Oct. 4 -- Greetings from Basilique Notre Dame, sitting high up on the hill of Fourvière overlooking all of Lyon. It's a breathtaking view perhaps only rivaled in Lyon by the gold-lined, vaulted ceilings inside the cathedral.

Oct. 3 -- Bonjour. If it's churches you're after, head to Vieux Lyon, where three religious monuments are must-sees here in Lyon, France. Built in the 12-15th centuries, the Saint Jean Cathedral is the oldest of the three (Saint Paul, 15th century, and Saint Georges, 19th century). It is a fine example of Romanesque arcitecture and is home to the Archbishop of Lyon, the top Archbishop in France. Salut.

Oct. 2 -- We're now in Rome, er, France ... It's so easy to get confused when looking at sights like this the Gallo-Roman Theater, and it's smaller cousin, the Odeon. Built in 43 B.C., the theaters are still in use today in the Fourviere section of Lyon. Au revoir. (Photo: Gregory Shamus/NBAE/Getty Images)



Oct. 1 -- Well, we finally made it to the banks of the Saône River, one of two that run through Lyon. The Saône is actually a tributary of the larger Rhône, which sits to the West. When you visit, do be sure to check out all of the different bridges -- for pedestrian and automobile traffic -- that cross the rivers. Au revoir.

Sept. 30 -- Bonjour, we're having a fantastic trip. We've even reserved you a table. Just hop the next flight to Paris, connect through to Lyon and tell the cabbie to step on it to Vieux Lyon. Bon Appétit!

Sept. 30 -- The narrow streets here in Vieux Lyon make for easy travel by foot, but watch for cars zipping down the cobblestone alleys. Today on Rue St. Jean, behind the St. Jean Cathedral, we came across a street performer much like you'd see in Times Square. This mime didn't say whether or not she was a fan of the Spurs. Au revoir.
