Following a short introductory session with your guide to perfect your steering skills, set out on a discovery tour of Lyon's two rivers, both of which are the living witnesses to 2,000 years of the city's history.
After crossing Place Bellecour, this tour takes you to the banks of the Rhône. This pleasant green route, which is very popular among locals, takes you upstream along the Presqu’île, all the way to Croix-Rousse hill, the iconic site of Lyon's silk industry.
No climbing is required: you'll be going through Croix-Rousse hill via the tunnel devoted to alternative means of transport, a tunnel alive with images projected onto the walls, to meet the Saône at the other side.
Just ahead lies the Saône meandering at the foot of Fourvière hill. This is your opportunity to discover a few reconverted historical sites, such as the fort of Saint-Jean, the city's former stronghold and now the National School of Public Finances, and the first veterinary school in Europe, which is now the French National Conservatory of Music and Dance (CNSMD).
You'll then be following the Saône all the way back to Vieux-Lyon, where the tour ends.
A trip through time that reveals the city's riches.
Please ensure you arrive 10 minutes before the tour commences.
