Lyon City Center Walking Tour
With a Lyon City Center Walking Tour you can follow a certified tourist guide through the most hidden secrets and wonders of the city of Lyon.
Outside the chaotic tourist cities, Lyon is a beautiful destination that can be easily reached and offers first of all an extraordinary gastronomy, a beautiful historic center and an enviable atmosphere of a rich but relaxed French city.
The city is divided into three large areas which you will explore on a Lyon city center walking tour with a certified expert local guide. We will start from the old city, the beating heart of Lyon, the largest Renaissance district in Europe with its narrow streets, squares and secret passages including the famous Traboules.
What are Traboules? They are covered passages that, over the centuries, have served and served for different purposes: the artisans used them to guarantee silk being careful not to expose it to the rain and the partisans to hide from the Nazis. Continuing the tour, you will come across the most beautiful square in the city “La Place des Torreaux” where the town hall and the majestic central fountain of the architect Bartholdi stand, the same as the statue of Liberty. Continuing through the silent, colorful and magical city of Lyon, the guide will lead you inside the Cathedral of Saint Jean, one of the best European examples of transition from Romanesque to Gothic. Inside there is one of the oldest astronomical clocks in Europe.
