Do you enjoy a thrill? Then follow the guide in search of brigands, murderers and all kinds of crooks who plagued the streets of the lovely city of Lyon!
And it's not a thing of the past either: wealth and glory have always acted as a lure for bad boys.

The tour includes a walk through the town, as you take a journey back through the ages, from the 14th century up to the present day, discovering the history of some of the city’s darker characters whose crimes and misdeeds once terrorised the good folk of Lyon.

These squares, streets and buildings were once the scenes of their misdemeanours and have inspired many a writer and filmmaker.
If you enjoy thrillers, listen to the guide as he tells you all about the dark and nefarious side of Lyon… with a sense of humour!

A chilling, thrilling and fascinating tour!

Duration of the visit : 2h. Please ensure you arrive 10 minutes before the tour commences.
