A tour combining history and stories

Comfortably seated in your electric cycle rickshaw, set off on a tour of Lyon with a local guide who is passionate about their city.

During this guided tour, you can discover silk and gold weaving, the Jacquard looms and the famous silk worm. See the city from a fresh perspective, in the heart of historical districts that are listed as UNESCO World Heritage. Follow the guide!

In Vieux-Lyon, the old town, take a journey back to the Renaissance, explore the mysterious traboules (hidden passageways between streets) and get a close look at the techniques used to make fabrics that have shaped Lyon’s history since the sixteenth century.
Next, cross the heart of the city via the Presqu'île – the peninsula between the rivers Saône and Rhône. Here, you can see the city’s major landmarks and enjoy a stroll along the banks of the Rhône, with a view of the hills and Lyon’s most beautiful monuments.

Canut and Bistanclac

A "canut" is someone who works with a spool of thread with a metal tip. As this tool struck the loom, a clangour that sounded like "bistanclac-pan" rang out, an onomatopoeia soon adopted by the inhabitants of Lyon to refer to Jacquard weaving looms.
