On this free tour, your guide will take you through the old city of Lyon, Vieux Lyon. We start at Saint-Jean cathedral. During the middle ages and the renaissance, this was the heart of the city. Now, it is one of highlights of a visit to Lyon. The neighborhood is so unique that it is protected by UNESCO and on our tour you will see why!
The houses in Vieux Lyon are painted in bright colours and are often hundreds of years old. The little streets are not only filled with history, but also with traditional restaurants and shops. Your guide will explain everything about the neighborhood and show you some hidden 'Traboules', old passageways between houses. You will learn about the gastronomy in Lyon, get to know the Michelin guide system and find out how to find some 'Traboules' for yourself. We will finish the tour at one of the amazing murals that Lyon is famous for.
This tour starts at 10:00 at Place Saint-Jean on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.
On this tour of the Croix-Rousse and Presqu’île neighborhoods, you will discover the lovely area of the Pentes de Croix-Rousse. It’s a lovely area, where once the silk workers of Lyon lived. The area is filled with lovely views over the city, great artisanal shops, churches and even the remains of a Roman amphitheatre.
After visiting Croix-Rousse, we descend unto Place de Terreaux, the beating heart of Lyon. This is the main town square and the most important space in Presqu’île, the modern city center. Here, we will see the impressive Bartholdi fountain, the Hôtel de Ville and the lovely courtyard of the Musée des Beaux-Arts (if open). We finish close to the Saône river, at the famous book fresco.
