Guided tours Croix-Rousse
Tour proposed by Lyon tourisme et Congrès

Beyond its silk and traboules, Croix-Rousse reveals other facets of its history that go all the way back to the Gallo-Roman period…

There are many tours in Croix-Rousse on the theme of silk and traboules...
But did you know that before that, the hill, which was located outside the city, was covered in vines and was home to the "field houses" of the wealthy inhabitants of Lyon? 
Did you know that many religious communities settled here, such as the Carthusian monks, as early as the late 16th century? The superb baroque church of Saint-Bruno des Chartreux is still standing, and should not be missed. 
This tour takes you towards the Saône along one of Lyon's oldest routes all the way to Place Sathonay. After climbing several stairways to enjoy the panoramic views, you'll be taken to Place Rouville, a superb balcony overlooking the city, then on to the archaeological site of the Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls, a major building in Gallo-Roman Lugdunum.
Croix-Rousse has no end of well-kept secrets to share with you!
