I traboule, you traboule…
In Lyon, the verb "trabouler" is now part of everyday language and means to "walk down a traboule" or "take a short cut". So don't be alarmed if, during your tour, the guides suggests doing a spot of trabouling!
How lucky I am to have been able to study the history of art and archaeology in Lyon. It's magic! From the Roman theatres to the Musée des Confluences, past, present and future combine in beauty and harmony, just like the gold, silver and silk threads woven by the canuts.
Let's set out for a spot of "trabouling" with Rabelais' ghost, who will lead us from Hôtel-Dieu to the wealthy homes of the merchant bankers in Vieux-Lyon, stopping at inns, bouchons or star-rated restaurants on the way…
Let your eyes feast on the golden light that's worthy of Italy, and gilds the slopes of Croix-Rousse on summer evenings as you stroll along the embankment amid the seagulls and boats.
I love this city because life is so sweet here, and I love telling visitors all about it, as the enthusiastic urbanist in me sees the city as a living organism.
I've always lived in Lyon and have always loved my city. So after studying tourism and the history of art, I joined the tourist information office to share my passion.
As far as I'm concerned, accompanying a group is first and foremost about sharing friendly moments devoted to discovering the wealth of our heritage. I'm particularly fond of taking young people on a discovery tour of Lyon and seeing the city through their eyes!
I'm passionate about architecture and I love visiting museums in France or abroad. A lovely exhibition is always a great excuse to travel!
My passions? Creative leisure activities: scrapbooking, embroidery, crochet… I like to keep my fingers busy!
See you soon in the streets of Lyon!
