Guided tours Presqu'ile Vieux-Lyon
Tour proposed by Lyon tourisme et Congrès

Two different districts, two different atmospheres...

On each side of the river Saône, enjoy a guided walk and discover two different districts and two different l'atmospheres. 

On the left bank, the Presqu’île, the heart of Lyon where the city hall, the Fine Arts Museum and the Hall of Trade stand side by side with luxury boutiques, restaurants and extremely handsome squares: Bellecour, les Célestins, les Jacobins, République, les Cordeliers or les Terreaux.

And on the right bank, Old Lyon, colour fully Renaissance with its narrow cobbled streets, lined with Renaissance town-houses, criss-crossed by "traboules".

Ideal for discovering the Lyon atmosphere and way of life… in both past and present.

From the great thoroughfares to the Renaissance alleyways, relive the highlights of the history of Lyon.

The simplicity of bridges in Lyon

In 1944, when the Nazis left Lyon, they blew up the bridges over the Rhône and Saône (all except a small footbridge!). So cheap ones had to be rebuilt fast…
