Guided walking tour of the Old Town of Lyon
Come discover one of the city’s historical jewels. Nestled at the foot of Fourvière hill and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage center, this must-see quarter is a truly exceptional site.
Your tour begins in the square known as « Place Saint-Jean ». After visiting the Gothic Cathedral we’ll dive deep into the Renaissance period when Lyon represented the crossroads between Italy and Flanders. The architecture of this district stands as an exceptional testimony to this era. Your guided tour of some of Lyon’s typical « Traboules » will reveal how the old city’s inhabitants lived at the time in an environment hemmed in by the Saône river, lit up by inner courtyards and embellished by hanging garden
