I love Lyon

This unusual tour will give you an insider's view of Lyon's very essence in just 2 hours! You'll be treated to all the weird and wonderful, moving, terrifying and comical details that make up the city's history. You'll get to enjoy some of our local specialities: marzipan Coussins, caramelised almond Pralines, Rosette sausage and Saint-Marcellin cheese. And above all, you'll be taken on a stroll through the most symbolic districts in Lyon: Fourvière with its basilica overlooking the city, and Vieux-Lyon with its famous traboules. You may even get to see the puppet Guignol...

Whether you're in the "Croix-Rousse", "Terreaux" or "Confluence" team, you'll need to be creative and use your imagination to answer the questions, and attempt to win a prize!

As they say here in Lyon "Not everyone can be born and bred in Lyon, some people have to come from other parts of the world."

A close shave for Vieux-Lyon!

Two mayors, E. Herriot and L. Pradel, had intended to tear down this dilapidated quarter to build expressways. In 1962, André Malraux, the Minister of Culture, saved Vieux-Lyon, making it the first listed site in France.
