During this tour of the Presqu’île, which will take you from Place des Terreaux to Grand Hôtel-Dieu, you'll find yourself at the heart of Lyon's erotic past. Hear all about the notorious debauchery that marked local history, the positions authorised by 16th century doctors, and the medical recommendations made on the subject of masturbation during the 19th century.
Famous characters such as Casanova will tell you of their exploits in the city. The myths intended to explain Man's origins will be revealed: how women acquired their Altars of Venus, and how men came to possess their physical manifestation of erotic excitement… And of course, your guide-actor (who won't be dressed up, but will be dressed nonetheless) will point out all the hottest addresses in Lyon… during the Renaissance!
This fun, historical and naughty tour is sure to charm and titillate you!

Lyon et Erasmus
Lyon did not go unnoticed by the 16th century philosopher Erasmus, who mentioned the pretty waitresses in the city's inns in his works, saying they had «a twinkle in their eye, a dainty way of talking and a thoughtful manner».
