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

Explore the sites of some of the worst crimes to have occurred throughout Lyon's long and occasionally grim history. A totally unusual guided tour!

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!

An exclusive tour of Lyon Tourism and Conventions.

A scarlet paving stone

On the corner of Rue de la République and Place de la Bourse, one red paving stone stands out among a sea of grey ones. It marks the spot where President Sadi Carnot fell after being knifed by the anarchist Sante Caserio, on the 24th June 1894.
