Guided tours Family Vieux-Lyon
Tour proposed by Lyon tourisme et Congrès

Vieux Lyon is one of the most entertaining historical sites to visit with children: from traboules to curiosities and silk... Test our family visit.

You want to give a taste of culture and heritage to your children? This is your opportunity.

Parents and children can explore Vieux-Lyon from a different viewpoint thanks to this fun and instructive tour. 
Experience life as it was during the Renaissance and dive into the district's history by learning all its secrets! 
Go with a guide for an informative and entertaining walk with your children from 6 years and up.
They'll be doing some "trabouling", hearing some stories and historical facts, looking out for signs, details on monuments and being taught all there is to know about the astronomical clock in Saint Jean's cathedral.
Then they'll be taking a break and get to to silk workshop of Soierie Saint-Georges...
At the end of the visit, children are given a memento booklet.
This fun and interactive visit appeals to young and old alike.
Our culture-boosting objective has been achieved!
