Tour proposed by Tasty Lyon

A cultural and gourmet tour, 100% Lyonnais!

Meet, in front of the Tourist Centre on Bellecour Square, with you guide, a dedicated historian and food lover. To start your appetite your guide will treat you to a famous lyonnaise specialty: the “Coussin de Lyon”.
The story of this emblematic treat is closely linked to the history of the Basilica of Fourvière on the top of the hill. You will be able to appreciate the unique beauty of its architecture while walking to the riverbanks. On Sundays, you will be able to cross a farmer’s market to go to the Old Town and discover the local produce. Also, an occasion to taste gourmet surprises!

Passionate by the history of the city, your guide, takes you to explore the district. You will love strolling in its little alleyways to take in its beautiful and authentic architecture.You will cross the famous traboules and discover amazing hidden courtyards. The Old Town will soon no longer have secrets for you. A treat is waiting for you at every corner: pink praline, chocolate macaroon…

Tastings vary based on the season, but every tour is a real culinary delight. You will then head back to the Peninsula for a savory stopover in the fresh food market of Les Halles de l'Hôtel- Dieu, so you can discover the local cold meats and cheeses as you taste a glass of wine.

A STORY OF WOMEN

Thank you to the Mères Lyonnaises, famous cooks who started their own restaurants in the 20th century. With their home-style cooking and their slightly grumpy welcome, they gave Lyonnais gastronomy its own special character.
